NCDPI Next Steps

“Every student should have the opportunity to go to school, work hard, and reach their American Dream.” – Mark Johnson

Across the United States high schools have dropped vocational and technical education programs over the past 30 years, eliminating a key way young people are introduced to ‘middle-blue collar careers’.

The mission of US Careers Online is to be a resource for middle and high school students and their parents, educators and individuals re-entering the workforce to discover the many career opportunities available to them. Students today want to be active, engaged and know why they should learn specific skills. By using videos rather than printed brochures, US Careers Online highlights both careers and the pathways available to enter the workforce.

Work-based learning provides students with a variety of experiences that are designed to bridge the gap between classroom instruction and the world of work. Students have the opportunity to gain knowledge and develop employability skills leading to better informed career choices and readiness.

WBL experiences can include:

  • Internships (Career and Service)
  • Job Shadowing
  • Apprenticeships
  • Classroom presentations
  • Field trips

As a Career Development Coordinator, I help students and teachers plan for WBL. In order for students to receive a WBL experience, they first need to apply.
