Reach Out’s Healthcare Work Based Learning program actively enhances education efforts by collaborating with junior high and high school students. The program allows students to exemplify their analytical, oral, written, and other essential skills in a professional setting. The WBL model expands upon key core competencies that employers seek in future employees through four unique stages: Awareness, Exposure, Preparation, and Training.

Reach Out teams up with school districts to address the unique needs of their student population. Experiential learning opportunities are then facilitated as staff connects the current healthcare workforce to students in the Inland Southern California Region. WBL programs last for the duration of the school year and are customized to meet each school’s unique needs.
