The work experience program gives the students the opportunity to explore the world of employment. The school has an ever growing list of supportive employers representing a variety of career sectors. The employers host the students and the students become a temporary employee of the business or association. It has many benefits for the students: they can learn skills, boost their confidence, explore their interests, develop their resumes, just to name a few. It also is also an excellent learning experience for the employers, staff and public who learn about working and communicating with Deaf and hard of hearing students.
