Off-Campus Opportunities

Off-campus education connects what students learn in school with the real world in a variety of ways, including job-shadowing, volunteering and paid positions. It helps prepare students for the workplace through hands-on experiences. These opportunities are offered to all high school students.  

Two of the most popular Off-campus Education programs are the Work Experience and Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP). These programs run during the school year as well as in the summer through Chinook Learning Services Summer Off-campus program​

Get in touch with your school’s Off-campus Coordinator to register.
