The Grant Career Center's Work-Based Learning Program (previously Early Placement) is in full swing, assisting students in gaining real-world work experience. 78 students are presently enrolled in Work-Based Learning at Grant Career Center (WBL). We have had a total of 92 students who have participated (Employed or Job Shadowing) at some point during the school year. These students have worked over a combined 25,000 hours, while earning $254,000+, at an average of $12.50 hr. Our top wage earners right now are at $18 hr.

" I am extremely honored to work with such an enthusiastic group of hard workers. These students are the future of our workforce and debunk the myth that all teenagers are lazy. I also want to say that these experiences would not be happening without the huge support of our business partners. They are truly taking a front seat in educating our youth."
-Chad Graybill, Work Based Learning Coordinator, Grant Career Center
