WORKSITE LEARNING and Science Research Internship

Attention sophomores and juniors:  Do you want to earn money while earning school credit?  Are you interested in working in an environment that matches your career path? Lean more about Worksite Learning!

WHAT:  Worksite Learning is a CTE (Career and Technical Education) program designed to place students in a working environment that matches their career path.  WSL is a partnership between the school-employer-and student.  It is a competency-based program that integrates classroom instruction with structured worksite experiences.  WSL provides exposure, experience and paid training in a specific career – a capstone experience to the students program of study.  The experiences are monitored and supervised by both representatives of an educational institution and a community workplace.  Students must provide their own transportation.

Students receive a semester credit (.5 credit) while working part-time in a local area company (180 hours per semester work experience for a maximum of 1 credit per year) and meeting program requirements. Students in the program are released 1-2 periods from the school day to go to work. Attendance at WSL Seminar during their senior year is required.

WHO:  Any current sophomore/junior, who has identified their career path, has a 2.5 GPA and has completed or enrolled in a class that is related to their career path and job placement, “connecting class”. 

CONTACT your school counselor or call/email Mrs. Richardson at 967-6524, Karen.richardson@rsd.edu. ;

*****WSL Business students are eligible for direct credit through Columbia Basin College. 

Washington Business Week

Summer Registration is here! Already our numbers have been growing and slots are filling up.  If you or someone you know is interested in attending Washington Business Week, don't delay and call or click today to secure your spot.  

Please contact Katherine Anderson, our Program Coordinator and Registrar, at registrar@wbw.org or by phone at 253-815-6900 with any questions.

In just seven days, Washington Business Week places students in a dynamic simulation where they role play as industry professionals, launch a company, sharpen their communication skills, and solve real-world challenges.

Students take the lead as their team races against the clock to develop a world-changing idea and pitch it to potential investors at the end-of-week competition. Guided by a mentor from a local business, students learn to work as a team, explore careers, take a test run of university life, build a network with professionals and future leaders, earn college credit, and maybe even win a scholarship.

Each day students and their companies dive into real-world business simulation in the career pathway they’ve chosen. Students make “real life” decisions as a team and participate in interactive projects with other teen companies. Business leaders from around the state share their experiences and challenges, and provide valuable insight and direction as they mentor the teams.

It’s not all work, though! There are also plenty of opportunities for fun during the week including dances, campus tours, a talent show, and plenty of free time activities!

For 40 years, we have provided 60,000 high school students with a competitive edge on college readiness, career advancement, and overall life success. Discover what thousands of young people now know about themselves – how to make an amazing impact in the 21st-century workplace.
