Work experience program (WorkX)

The aim of our work experience program, WorkX, is to provide our high school students with productive, varied and thoughtful learning experiences in the real working world.

The office of student advising (OSA) and the PCA’s WorkX committee jointly manage ASL's work experience program. The WorkX program includes speakers, workshops, workplace visits and summer work experience opportunities. 

Workplace visits, speakers and workshops are open to all high school students, and WorkX opportunities are open to Grade 10-12 students and take place over the summer break. The majority of these work experience placements are exclusive to our ASL students.

Applications for summer placements are made through the WorkX committee, and not directly to employers. Employers review the applications, make the acceptance decisions, and notify the WorkX committee.

Use the links below and the navigation links on the left to learn about the application process! Questions? Email us.

If you're a parent interested in hosting an ASL student for a summer placement, we would love to hear from you!
