Aiken Works was launched by the Aiken County Public School District in January of 2016. Part marketing initiative, part framework for work-based learning, Aiken Works aims to encourage multiple pathways to post-secondary success and facilitate opportunities for hands-on learning to ensure students graduate from high school with both a diploma and an employable skill set. The community collaborative was named an educational award finalist for a prestigious InnoVision Award in 2017 and has tripled the number of career-study opportunities available to students in just two years.
