Career Based Intervention

Program Highlights

Opportunity to work during half the school day | Earn credits toward graduation | Introduction to life skills; money management, budgeting, taxes and insurance | Interviewing and job search skills

Program Description

The Career Based Intervention program is designed for senior students who are academically on track for graduation and are looking for a real world work experience during the lab portion of their school day.

The program attempts to reorient students' attitudes toward higher levels of achievement in school and work to reinforce their social responsibility to our society. It is hoped this can be accomplished by arranging suitable, on-the-job training and related instruction to develop feelings of accomplishment and success.

Career Based Intervention students must work during the lab portion of their school day in the local business community and they receive high school credit for this work experience.

This program is for students who:
Have a valid driver's license 
Are physically able to work 
Have been recommended by school personnel

Students are required to maintain employment for the entire school year.
Transportation to and from school and the job site is the responsibility of the student.
