OREGON CONNECTIONS OVERVIEW
Oregon Connections is a web-based tool that matches educators with career related resources for a variety of experiences including guest speakers, job shadows, field trips, in-school and out-of school volunteer opportunities, career fairs, informational interviews, internships, project based learning advisors, and more.
Oregon Connections offers both in-person matches and virtual matches. Teachers can easily input a request for a resource and the system will automatically find professionals whose skills match their request. Once a match is determined, the system can notify business professionals via email. Matches are also tracked within the system.
Oregon Connections supports the generation of reports based on a variety of metrics including hours by professionals and/or organizations, number of connections made, and type of connections made.
