Work Experience at American River College



American River College


Work Experience (WEXP) is an experiential academic program that allows students the opportunity to apply what they have learned in your classroom to their job or internship worksite. Co-op Work Experience Education started at a university in Cincinnati in 1911, and exists in university and community colleges all over the United States today. Its application for learning format, coupled with a required weekly Work Experience class, as required by Los Rios, have great appeal to our students and employers in the greater Sacramento region. The WEXP teamlooks forward to working with you. We are also available to assist you in coordinating efforts to develop internship sites in your industry field. We are available to make in-class presentations to your students about the benefits of participating in Work Experience. We are here to support you.
