Work-Based Learning Program

Work-Based Learning

Delaware State Parks is now offering T.R.E.C. Work-Based Learning opportunities throughout the school year.

Interested high school students or classes can sign up for as many sessions as best fits for the experience they are seeking. Sessions are offered statewide and time slots are flexible to meet school schedules.

We are happy to work with students to meet requirements to earn course credit from their school and are always looking for new schools to partner with us.

2 hour sessions for individual and small groups of students are available 5 days a week. Flexible field trip options are available upon request for classes with aligned pathways and/or interest in “trying out” our Work-Based Learning programs.
