Work Experience Bulletin Board
Below are job opportunities available to high school students by area organizations that have contacted our Work Experience Education Program. Palo Alto Unified School District in no way endorses any of these organizations but simply makes the information available to our student body. Students and their parents must do their own due diligence on any organization that they contact. Students must also obtain a work permit from the Work Experience Education Program for any paying job that they obtain if they are under age 18. Finally, students are strongly encouraged to enroll in a Work Experience Education class if they have an unpaid and/or paid job.
