Other Work-Based Learning Programs

How does YA compare to other work-based learning programs?

Work-based learning experiences expose students to different types of jobs and help students learn and apply skills necessary to the working world.  Concurrently, these experiences give students the opportunity to acquire attitudes, skills, and knowledge for work and other life roles by participating in actual or simulated work settings related to in-school instructional programs. All of these activities are aimed at the infusion of workplace experiences into the academic environment to assist students in developing work behaviors that will make them more employable.

There are a wide variety of work-based learning choices offered through school districts. Discussion with your guidance counselor will help you to choose the one that best meets your needs and career goals.
