Work-based learning is an instructional strategy that is essential in preparing all students for success in postsecondary education and future careers. The Work-Study/Internship Program at Wahconah is designed, in cooperation with the Guidance Department, the Berkshire Regional Employment Board, and local employers to provide both college and career connecting opportunities for juniors and seniors, along with opportunities for skill development and direct application. 

All work-based learning experiences involve interactions with industry and community professionals and are linked to school-based instruction. These learning experiences are designed to help students apply classroom learning while experiencing learning opportunities that are difficult to achieve through classroom instruction alone. 

The Work Study/Internship Program offers students the opportunity to earn credit for work-related experiences as both paid and unpaid internships. Students who take advantage of the program will receive individualized vocational skills training, as well as instruction in the many facets of their chosen occupational area and establish good employer references. 

The program is offered in various formats, which range from half day school/half day work, to other in-school, after school, evening, and summer options.
