Worksite Tours

Worksite tours introduce groups of Pathway/Academy students to the world of work by exposing them to the environment, expectations, and requirements of the workplace, professions, and industries. Worksite tours allow students to take an up-close look at what a workplace is, what the people working there are like and how to relate classroom learning to the world of work.
