Career-Related Learning Experiences
What is a CRLE?
Career-Related Learning Experiences (CRLEs) are structured educational experiences that connect learning to the world beyond the classroom. Some CRLEs happen at school and are arranged by our school staff. Community organizations and industry groups sponsor career days, mentor and internship programs too. Many students arrange their own half or full day job shadows by asking a neighbor, family friend or a friend's family member to host them. Some examples of CRLEs are:
- Job Shadow (half-day experience at work with a non-family member)
- Internship (structured work + learning experience)
- Industry-sponsored Career Day (one day event)
- Industry-sponsored Career Mentor Program or Career Exploration Program (long-term commitment)
- Community Service Project/Volunteering (with a career focus)
- Career Field Trip with a teacher or club advisor
- Fall Media Day
- College and Career class trips
- School-based career activity with an occupational focus (e.g. mock trial, publications, theater production, etc.)
- Regional Career Fairs
- Career-themed Lecture or Guest Speaker
- One-on-one Information Interview (with a non-family member)
All CRLE reflections are submitted through a Google Form.
