Working with Students

Thank you for your interest in providing a work-based learning experience for local Sonoma County students. Your participation is key in the students’ successful path and transition into a career.


Work-based learning is an instructional strategy that involves interaction with industry professionals that are not employed at the school. Work-Based Learning may take place at school or on a work site and should include the following:

  • A sequence of experiences that begins with awareness and moves on to exploration and hands-on preparation
  • Clearly defined learning objectives related to classroom instruction
  • Collaboration between employers and educators, with clearly defined roles for each
  • Intentional and clearly defined student learning outcomes
  • Structured assignments before, during and after in order to reflect on the experience and how it connects to what they are learning in the classroom
  • Prepares students for success in post-secondary education and careers
