Workforce Innovation and Opportunities Act
Opportunities For Learning Baldwin Park Public Charter Schools are proud to be a Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Exclusive Partner. We provide all instruction in a workforce context offering students the opportunity to prepare for their college and career goals prior to graduation. Students can take advantage of internships, work experience, job placement, and family wrap around services. Curriculum is embedded with materials and activities that strengthen students soft skills and workforce development. All students have the opportunity to work closely with our WIOA partner organizations. In addition, we offer 12 months of mentoring and follow-up once a student leaves our program. Ensuring students leave prepared to enter the workplace is our number one priority.
We offer CTE (Career Technical Education) courses to help prepare students for post-secondary careers. Our Career and Technical Education courses included hands-on-work, professional instructors, job training, skill-building, and more!

Concurrent enrollment is the option for our students to take community college classes while enrolled. This will allow students to experience the college setting. Students will gain college level credit which will also be counted towards high school graduation. Classes are offered at no cost to our students. Students are responsible for providing their own transportation to the selected college.
