A Note from Danielle, NEACEFE President ‘20-‘22

NEACEFE is committed to remaining a helpful source of support for our membership and the students we serve now more than ever.  Over the next several months, how we accomplish this mission will look differently than before, and we are prepared to re-prioritize, pivot and make changes. I know that you are too and we will welcome your energy in this space. 

The safety of our students, interns, co-op collaborators, employer partners, staff and members is of the upmost priority.  Whenever we are discussing programming, we are required to balance the scales between a robust and dynamic event that meets your needs, and also one that preserves the health and safety of our communities. 

Please reach out to neacefe@gmail.com with any questions or requests regarding programming that would be helpful at this time. We welcome your ideas!

About Us:

NEACEFE (New England Association for Cooperative Education and Field Experience) is an association which promotes the development and expansion of experiential education programs within New England high schools, colleges, and universities and the employers of their students. The Association has several basic goals:

  • Promote experiential education as an integral part of the education process.
  • Serve as a forum for the exchange of ideas and information related to experiential education between educators and employers.
  • Serve as a source of information to legislators and governmental agencies on the benefits of experiential education.
  • Design and offer professional development workshops and training to enhance the professional growth of our members.
  • Collaborate with other professional associations that have mutual interests.


NEACEFE turned 40 in 2016! 

 In the fall of 1976, a group of co-op directors and employers in New England recognized the need for a regional approach to foster the development and the expansion of cooperative education and field experience education programs. Their goal was to help experiential programs flourish in New England, and establish an organization where members could exchange ideas and share their unique experiences in the field.

Since that time, our membership has diversified to reflect the changing world of education and careers, incorporating all aspects of experiential education: co-op education, internships, field experience, community service, and career related job programs. Educational members come from high schools and two-/four-year, public/private, colleges/universities throughout the New England region, and other states. Employer members represent large and small corporate, governmental, and non-profit agencies.

NEACEFE invites new members to join us in our efforts to achieve our goals.

NEACEFE TURNED 40 in 2016!
