Work-based Learning Experiences
All JVS students will have a work-based
learning experience before graduation.
These experiences are customized for each
program. Work-based learning experiences are usually unpaid and
generally short in duration. They are designed to let students improve
the skills they've learned in the vocational lab and acquire new
skills specific to the worksite. As part of the experience, students
will be asked to share the new skills or experience they've had with
their classmates. A work-based learning experience allows an employer to
assess a student's abilities, work ethic and may lead to employment.
Possible work-based learning experiences
include but are not limited to:
- Job Shadowing
- Working Interview
- Short Work Experience
- Career Fair
- Workplace Tour
- Project-Based Learning Experience
- Community Service/Service Project
Although work-based learning experiences
are considered excused time off from school, students are responsible
for completing all missed work.
