LAUSD has a dynamic Work Experience Education (WEE) program and plan throughout its high schools. Students may participate in a variety of Work Experience (General, Exploratory and Vocational) and receive supplementary support and instruction in the Work Experience classes taught at the school sites.
Whereas many young people can get jobs on their own, they often have difficulty keeping the jobs and adjusting to the rules of the workplace. Students who participate in WEE tend to transition better and have more positive and productive experiences in the adult work of work. By providing employers with school-based teachers who can supplement the job-site training, WEE creates a true partnership with the business community in order to develop the workforce of the future.
