Health Sciences Charter School Work Based-Learning Programing 

The Health Sciences Charter School Career Exploration/Internship Program is inclusive of learning technical, academic and employability skills by working in a real work environment. The Career Exploration Internship Program (CEIP) and Work Based-Learning bring the classroom to the workplace and the workplace to the classroom. 

This instructional strategy provides students with a well-rounded skill set that goes beyond academics and includes the soft skills needed to succeed in college and the working world. 

When coordinated with school-based learning, WBL offers project and problem-focused teaching and learning rather than the more abstract and theoretical teaching and learning that often takes place in classrooms. 

 These strategies include mentorship and relationship building with our partners in the community ultimately creating longevity for our CEIP/WBL program while enhancing student lives in the Buffalo community at large.
