Extended Learning Opportunity

What's an Extended Learning Opportunity (ELO)?

The Extended Learning Opportunity (ELO) program better prepares students for work, college, and citizenship. The program connects students with an outside mentor in the form of an internship, job shadow, work study, or specialized project in their desired career field based on their skills and interests. These are genuine opportunities for students to merge their various interests and passions with their academic lives at school. Similarly, it is a vehicle for students to demonstrate independence and complexity of thought as they build bridges from their high school careers to their future academic, professional, or vocational lives.

ELO's are for credit! Some business mentors offer paid experiences as well. To learn more, browse through the website and check out our FAQ tab. For additional support, contact grace.olsen@gorhamschools.org; (207) 222-1356
