Work-based learning (WBL) is an educational strategy that provides students with real-life work experiences where they can apply academic and technical skills. Early experiences in industry promote lifelong interest and build employable skills. Our students earn industry-recognized credentials in marine science and marine technology.
The New York Harbor School's work based learning programs (WBL) give students the opportunity to study complex subject matter as well as gain vital workplace skills in a hands-on environment. WBL experiences also provide students with career awareness, career options exploration, appropriate workplace skills development, and the opportunity to relate academic skills to real-life applications.
Each of our Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs has access to paid internships, service learning opportunities, professional visits, presentations in conferences, and work-site tours. Students are taught resume and interview skills and generate Work-Skills Employability Profiles.

Baruch College (CUNY)
