The Work Based Learning Program provides students the services of a specialist who devotes her time to creating educational opportunities for Olympus High students. These opportunities include:
- Job Shadowing– An opportunity to make observations about a career by visiting the work-site, asking questions of a professional, and touring the facility. This is usually a one time 2-4 hour experience.
- Internships– A semester long Pass/Fail class which allows students the opportunity to explore a career field in depth. Students attend a work-site, have a site-mentor, explore the career field through observation, participation and questions. Students recieve .5 elective credit for participation in this program. A student needs to complete 22 hours of written work/class time and attend 50 hours at the internship site (usually 5 hours a week).
- Job Fair– We host a Job Fair in the early spring. We invite businesses from around the valley and our local community to come to the school and visit with students about job opportunities.
