• Where do you start when you're ready to begin your required NAF work experience hours?

    Every opportunity is different. You need to read about each opportunity and decide if it is right for you. Be sure that you check the times required and the expected hours per week before you apply. We NEVER just match students with a work experience location. Academy students are taught to create the expected career documents and post everything on a personal Google site. Academy students are taught how to dress for success and how to interview. It is up to each student to pursue the right experience and earn their place. Use the resources on the Student tab to continue to improve your career documents and portfolio.

    Keep in mind!

    You won't get out of school until 3:30pm if you take a regular 1 - 6 period schedule. Many places in the community are only open until 5pm, so you should consider taking a 0 period to get out of school by 2:30pm. Ending school a bit earlier will allow you to consider more opportunities.
