Juniors and Seniors may gain experience in a chosen career path by participating in a mentorship placement. Mentorship is an opportunity for students who are highly motivated, self-directed and who have shown exceptional ability and interest in a particular career field, to investigate a career interest through planned on-the-job visitations in their chosen field. Students will be matched with an adult mentor working in the area of the student’s career interest. An individual plan, developed by the student, mentor and school mentorship coordinator/School Counselor will structure and guide the experience. This experience will require 40 hours in a workplace setting outside of school over the space of two terms and requires a culminating activity to receive credit. Students must have good attendance, a good discipline record, and be able to provide their own transportation.

- Students are responsible for finding employment - please refer to the SDNB Student Job Board for possible placement opportunities
- Successful completion of 40 hours per semester – including summer work experience
