This one-year course is designed for juniors and/or seniors to explore and participate in supervised part time non-paid training, volunteer work, and/or internships, while gaining academic and employment skills preparation in the classroom. Students are assisted in acquiring desirable work habits and attitudes. Students meet on the high school campus at least one period per week. Credit is awarded based on the number of hours spent at the non-paid business site (not to exceed 6 hours per week), regular attendance log/journals, and the completion of all class projects, paperwork and assignments. If a student gets hired, he/she will be transferred to the GWEE class and hours logged at the EWEE site will be added to the hours worked at the new job to determine the number of incremental credits the student will earn that semester.
Prerequisite: Students must be at least 16 years of age and willing to commit to the entire schedule of the exploratory assignment with good attendance, punctuality, and attitude. Training site must be pre-approved by the instructor.
