The Wenatchee School District is taking bold steps to fulfill the community’s vision for education that came out of the Wenatchee Learns community dialogue a few years ago.

Diana Haglund, the Wenatchee Learns coordinator, showed me around the office the district is opening in downtown Wenatchee to make it easier for volunteers and businesses to make meaningful contributions to the student learning. For businesses, that means opportunities for job shadows, internships and mentoring. For volunteers, it means finding ways to use their talents more effectively. For students, it means being able to get real-world experience during school years.
