The NIKE Work Based Learning Center prepares students for post-secondary plans for the 21st century. Career awareness and exploration is an important aspect of all students’ educational experience, and integral part of college and career readiness. The NIKE Work Based Learning Center provides real world experiences by extending the classroom to include the whole community, and gives students the opportunity to apply academic and technical skills to actual work.
