Program Overview

The Pathfinder Work-Based Learning Program provides a continuum of real-world opportunities for students at all levels to explore career paths while gaining valuable work experience, building career and college readiness skills, and making valuable connections to the community.

Work-Based Learning Continuum:  Students of every age and grade level are exploring careers!  Through meaningful field experiences and tours, guest speakers, career fairs, and the ICAP, students learn about work.  Project-based learning, internship, and work experiences students learn through work.  And students now have the opportunity to learn at work by participating in a multi-year paid apprenticeship.  Click here to view TSD's work-based learning continuum.

Pathfinder Internship and Pathfinder Apprenticeship represent the highest level of work-based learning opportunities offered by the Thompson School District, and both fulfill the Career Pathway Elective graduation requirement for high school students.  Utilize the menu at left to learn about these opportunities and apply for a life-changing career experience!
