Career Readiness

Program Overview

Daniel Boone Area High School is proud to provide a practical introduction to a work environment through direct contact with professionals in the community. Students are able to participate in workplace experiences which include job shadowing, internships, or a pre-apprentice program.

Job shadowing allows students to explore career paths and begin networking with professionals in a competitive job market. Internships provide students the opportunity to gain valuable work experience, explore career pathways, refine skills, make connections, and enhance life readiness. School or community-sponsored pre-apprenticeship programs can be valuable training approaches and serve as the start of a career pathway, which can lead to apprenticeship opportunities. Apprenticeship programs pave the way for career-building, and lifelong learning through the attainment of stackable credentials. The foundation of the apprenticeship model is the continual building of skills and the ability for workers to obtain higher levels of employment in an occupation or industry.

Students who have, and maintain, satisfactory attendance and academic standing are eligible to participate. Students who wish to participate in these programs should contact their school counselors.
