  • Top of their class prepared students looking for internship opportunities

Worried about having a minor as an intern?

Because UAEC Pathway is recognized as a work-based learning program, any 16–18-year-old students enrolled in the Pathway fall under the Department of Labor Fair Labor Standards Act, Title 29 exception for prohibited job tasks for minors. Simply stated: students can be on “hazardous” job sites because it is essential to their learning.

The definition of a work-based learning program is that it coordinates structured and supervised learning activities between an employer and an educational institution. The setting must extend the classroom into the workplace or provide the student with an applied workplace experience.

In order for students to have a Title 29 exception, a work-based learning (WBL) program contract must be in place. A WBL program contract coordinates structured and supervised learning activities between an employer, educational institution and student. A WBL program extends the classroom to the job site (or equivalent), using a skills grid to measure performance while providing an applied workplace experience for the student learner.
