The Work-Based Learning Honors Program involves businesses, schools and community organizations working together to provide high school juniors and seniors with an education rich in both rigorous academics and practical work-related experiences—teaching them the tasks, skills and responsibilities associated with today’s workplace while encouraging community service. 

 

Today’s high-skilled job market demands that all high school graduates—whatever their career destinations—have advanced academic knowledge and work place skills.  This program is designed for the student who has a clearly defined career goal.  Students will have the opportunity to take advantage of state approved pathway offerings at their perspective school. 

 

The WBL Honors Program will culminate their internship experiences, research on industry trends, and community service project in a visual format by creating and maintaining an industry recognized e-Portfolio. 

 

The e-Portfolios will provide hands-on learning opportunities and to help students successfully make the transition from high school to college and from college into the workplace as a productive citizen.

Online Portfolio

An ePortfolio is a collection of work (evidence) in an electronic format that showcases learning over time. When you think about your ePortfolio and the types of evidence that it contains, it is important to think carefully about its purpose and intended audience.  

The American Association of Colleges and Universities recently found that nearly 80% of employers say that an electronic portfolio would be useful to them in ensuring that job applicants have the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in their company or organization. (American Association of Colleges and Universities, 2013)
