Informational Interview: Students spend approximately sixty minutes with a business professional, asking career-related questions.

 

 

Job Shadow: Students observe a professional at the workplace for a half or full day to learn about a particular career.

 

 

Class Presentation: Business representatives spend time in the classroom sharing their expertise, along with describing  their careers and related education requirements.

 

 

Worksite Visit: Students visit worksites and tour facilities to learn about all aspects of the business or industry.

 

 

Mentorship: Students are paired with an adult who serves as a mentor over an extended period of time.  The student learns the skills, knowledge, and behavior necessary for the profession.

 

 

Internship: This is a hands-on, project-based learning experience for students.  Students spend at least ten hours at the  worksite (2 hours per week for 5 weeks), performing job-related tasks under the supervision of a business partner. 

 

Internship Course: The Internship Course is a semester-long elective which offers an experiential learning opportunity in an approved business, government agency, or non-profit organization. Students meet with the School to Career Coordinator to identify an area of interest and appropriate placement. The student, School to Career Coordinator, and work-site supervisor meet to identify learning goals and objectives designed to provide a thorough understanding of the profession. Students attend a weekly seminar on Mondays at BHS and then go to their internships for the remaining course periods. The seminar focuses on workplace readiness skills such as interviewing, resumes, workplace safety, dining etiquette, workplace ethics, and dressing for success. Course requirements include class participation, homework assignments, journals, a refelction paper, and a final presentation.

 

  Apprenticeship:  Registered youth apprenticeships are four year, paid work-based learning experiences which begin in the 11th grade.  The apprentice learns a trade or occupation in a structured educational program.  The apprenticeship  continues for two years after graduation and includes post-secondary education. Upon successful completion, the apprentice receives a Certificate of Mastery in his/her occupational area.
