The California Internship and Work Experience Association (CIWEA) is dedicated to the professional development of internship and work experience professionals throughout the state of California.
Our mission is three-fold:
- To serve as an advocate for and to broaden the understanding of the objectives and values of work based learning that integrates classroom learning (theory) with hands-on application (practice).
- To serve as a resource for technical assistance and information to educational institutions and employers endeavoring to establish, strengthen, and maintain their work-integrated learning programs.
- To provide opportunities for active interchange of ideas and professional development relevant to the integration of classroom learning and work experience.
