Welcome to our Work Based Learning Class. Like most school-to-work programs, WBL gives the student a chance to learn at two places: school and work. To be part of the WBL classes, students should be employed in a position that can offer an average of 12 hours per week by the end of the school year. While participating in WBL, students learn how to enter the job market, how to succeed on the job, and other aspects needed for a young adult in the working world such as: time management, teamwork, & social and business etiquette.
If you or someone you know has an opening for a part-time student worker, call me. I will be glad to work with you in placing a WBL student in your business.
