Earn While You Learn!
EARN WHILE YOU LEARN is a program designed to provide students with an opportunity to learn and develop a positive work ethic and employment skills through a series of project-based workshops that lead to paid and unpaid internships within the program and school community.
WHAT ARE THE STUDENT OBJECTIVES?
⦁ Students will learn how to use Xposure’s 6C’s (Commitment, Compromise, Courtesy, Control, Choices, Communication) to successfully navigate situations at school, work and home.
⦁ Students will understand that a resume shows, who they are, what they done and what they can do.
⦁ Students will be able to articulate the differences between a job and career, personal qualities, job skills and accomplishments.
⦁ Students will create their very own cover letter, written and video resume.
⦁ Students will be able to identify and model acceptable employment social norms such as making eye contact, speaking in a clear and concise manner, being courteous, etc.
⦁ Students will learn, practice and develop interviewing skills, which will be used when they interview for prospective paid/unpaid internships within the program and school.
NOTE: The experiences and social interactions gained through EWYL will help students build meaningful relationships and learn to interact with people other than their friends and peers.
