Work coordinators assist in finding internships of interest for each student. Students earn credits in the work experience program. They may participate in the program for up to two years. Students learn how to research careers and post-secondary education opportunities. They learn how to apply for a job, interview, succeed on the job, and maintain personal finances. Many of the internships lead to full-time employment with benefits including employer-sponsored college tuition.
