Work-Based Learning

  • One of the greatest opportunities the Career Center provides is access to workplace learning opportunities.  Work-based learning (WBL) connects student learners with employers to prepare them for success in the workplace.  Benefits include strengthening academic, technical and career readiness skills, exploring career options, enhancing personal finance knowledge, fostering positive relationships with adults, and developing awareness of the requirements of careers so students can effectively plan career pursuits.  WBL opportunities include apprenticeships, pre-apprenticeships, paid internships, or clinicals.  Students have a chance at a unique Senior Year Only Program (SYOP) learning opportunity or capstone at Career Center. It's not the traditional "early out" but rather a structured pipeline into a chosen career field with local business partners. These invaluable connections with local industry create an actual real-world experience that you can earn an income, high school credits, and even land a job.
