    What is D230 Works?

    D230 Works is a work-based learning (WBL) program that helps students discover their individual career pathways after high school. Our focus is on providing opportunities for students to connect with potential career-related programs and activities that offer both exposure and real-world application through actual career based experiences.

    What is Work-Based Learning (WBL)?

    WBL is the "...the delivery of a continuum of work-based learning involving sustained, meaningful interactions with industry or community professionals that foster in-depth, firsthand engagement with the tasks required in a given career field. Experiences may be delivered in workplaces, in the community, at educational institutions and/or virtually, as appropriate, and include a range of activities such as workplace tours, job shadowing, school-based enterprises, internships and apprenticeships. The following reports, articles, guides and toolkits can help you develop and implement high-quality work-based learning." (www.acteonline.org).
