The Education, Workforce and Labor Topic Exchange focuses on strategies and the development of resources to improve and enhance K-12 education (including core STEM curriculum and career and technical education), higher education, adult and continuing education, and internship/apprenticeship programs that lead to careers in the food system. It also works on strategies which address food system workforce needs and labor issues. 

This group helps to facilitate communication, exchange of information, and to build connectivity and relationships amongst members who share an interest and/or knowledge of education workforce and labor in Vermont. The Education, Workforce and Labor Topic Exchange will include issues previously addressed in the Education and Workforce Development Working Group and Consumer Education and Marketing Working Group.

Members include K-12 and career and technical education center educators, college and university personnel, government agency staff, workforce development program administrators, educational consultants, and other organizational representatives working to improve food system education and workforce development opportunities for Vermonters.
