The criteria for student participation in GPP Workplace:
GPP Workplace is the placement of students in a cooperative education opportunity similar to other WBL placements. Workplace allows the student to receive on-the-job training and life skills within business settings, such as a corporate office, small business, or an industrial setting, such as a manufacturing or distribution facility. Students hold entry-level positions with real deliverables and expectations. Here they learn important workplace skills, such as communication, job performance, goal-setting, and decision making, while not only receiving a paycheck, but also receiving additional support through mentoring, tutoring, career coaching, and life skills sessions.
WorkPrep focuses on preparing those same students who are too young or not yet ready for employment. WorkPrep engages high school students at risk of not graduating in regularly scheduled life skills training, leadership development, college and career planning, and face-time with community and state leaders. These programs are hosted at local school sites..
