Work Based Learning

Work-Based Learning (WBL) gives qualified students the opportunity to learn a variety of skills by expanding the walls of classroom learning to include the community. By narrowing the gap between theory and practice, Work-Based Learning creates meaning for students. We provide several WBL opportunities for students. Under the guidance of adult mentors in our business community, students learn to work in teams, solve problems, and meet employers' expectations.
