Allow 24-48 hours for processing and approval.

PROGRAM GOALS

The goals of work experience for youth will be to ensure students a seamless transition from secondary education into meaningful, high quality employment and/or further education.

 

Specifically they are:

  1. To improve student achievement and performance through the use of the workplace as an active learning environment.
  2. To create a comprehensive work experience opportunity for all students that builds upon existing private and public sector resources and integrates academic and occupational learning.
  3. To expose students to career opportunities and facilitate the selection of career majors.
  4. To develop measurable outcomes that will ensure continued growth and improvement of the Work Experience Partnership that meet the needs of students, schools and employers.
  5. To develop attitudes necessary for successful job performance and cooperation with fellow workers.
  6. To encourage the development of pride in doing one's job well.
