The graphic below illustrates how a team of four students work together to cover a 1.0 FTE. All students will generally work one day per week (Monday through Thursday), approximately five days per month including the Friday rotation. Please use the file link below for the calendar showing our complete work schedule.
Job Share Model
This job share model allows our students to gain valuable experience in the workplace without missing any classroom instruction. The students are first grouped by workday and then by grade level and their schedules are arranged accordingly. For example, if Ana is a Monday worker (regardless of grade level), she will report to work every Monday, and her classes will only meet Tuesday through Friday, with the exception of the Fridays on which Monday students are required to work their Friday rotation. This same concept is applied to Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday student workers respectively.
Using the Model to Fit Your Needs
This model allows our students to balance their time at work and school, while also providing our partners with two primary ways to utilize our student workers within their business or organization, depending on their needs.
Our program is only successful when our partnerships are mutually beneficial, so we will work with each partner individually to identify their needs and determine which set up is most appropriate. Then, we can adjust team size and conduct student selection accordingly.
