Work-Based Experience

Work-Based Experience


Shannon Kenily, Coordinator

General Description

One of the most critical problems facing youth today is securing full time employment in a field where they wish to make a career. The Work Based Experience (WBE) Program at the Mid-East Career and Technology Centers attempts to provide the services which will aid youths in the transition from school to work.


The purpose of the WBE program is to provide the opportunity for students to observe and experience, on a first-hand basis, the nature of the occupation for which they are being trained. This unpaid experience will provide occupational benefits for both the employer and the student.
