Work Experience

Work Experience consists of placing students in work stations within the community. The purpose of this activity is to familiarize students with the world of work, to give them the opportunity to explore careers, and to possibly open up opportunities for either apprenticeship programs or permanent placement. Supervision and evaluation are done by both the work experience coordinator and the work station supervisor.

Students may enter this program pre-employed (with a current job) or consult with the work experience coordinator to obtain employment. This course offers an excellent opportunity to experience what a career would be like without waiting to obtain required prerequisites outside of school. Since this course is a cooperative effort between the school and community, there is an expectation for students to maintain a good work ethic and mature level of responsibility. If you currently hold a part-time job, you are strongly encouraged to register for this course.
