CLiC Liaisons

The UVBEP is pleased to offer CLiC - Connecting Learning in the Community, a service to help local schools, employers and community members connect. This growing resource includes BEST Employers, Teachers’ PET, CLiC Jobs and the CLiC Liaison Network. CLiC enables educators to tap into the expertise of area employers and community members. Resources cover topics such as business, communications, engineering, foreign languages, geography, history, performing arts, personal finance, physical fitness, science, teamwork, technology, visual arts and more!

We collect information from employers and community members willing to participate in activities and make it available to our Full Partner Schools through the CLiC Liaison Network. A CLiC Liaison is a designated person who serves as a link between UVBEP and their school to enhance and expand community connections and career exploration. Liaisons receive a stipend for the extra time and effort required to accomplish the responsibilities.

The purpose of establishing the network is to:
  • Enhance school-community partnerships
  • Ensure timely dissemination of UVBEP opportunities to teachers and students
  • Increase the number of students engaging in experiential learning opportunities
  • Increase educator awareness of and participation in professional development opportunities

Companies registered in BEST Employers and individuals registered in Teachers’ PET are not screened in any manner. We encourage educators to use the same process they normally would before inviting a guest into the classroom or taking students on a field trip (i.e., interviewing, checking references, etc.).

For reporting purposes, school personnel are asked to keep their Liaisons informed of the results of contacts made (guest speakers, field trips, job shadows, internships, etc.). In turn, Liaisons provide this feedback to UVBEP so we can continue to improve the service and track its impact on the community.

The following schools have contracted with UVBEP for this service. If your school is not listed, ask your principal or superintendent to consider becoming a Full Partner School.

Liaisons will be appointed early in the school year.
