Work Study Programs
The Work Study Program uses Work-based learning programs to offer a unique approach to high school. Work-based learning (WBL) is the “umbrella” term used to identify activities, which collaboratively engage employers and schools in providing structured learning experiences for students. Work-based learning applies to a broad array of learning experiences, from career awareness and exploration to career development and application.
Our students complete a high school diploma bound program part of the day and work the rest of the day. Our students work in various work sites around Staten Island to learn work skills and experiences. Such experiences include paraprofessional training, medical health careers, culinary arts, building maintenance, simple landscaping and more. Our program also uses the virtual job shadow platform to learn about additional careers and how to reach those goals.
