Work Placement Partners

Over 100 Strong Partnerships with Local Employers

During the senior year, our students have the opportunity to take advantage of learning and earning in the real world, on the job, with real professionals. Through our School-To-Work program, we assist our students in securing apprenticeships, internships and employment in a position that requires a certain level of skill attainment in a job related to their program of study. If students meet the requirements, they work during school time, earn a lab grade, and get paid to gain on-the-job training. What better way to be prepared for life after graduation and to launch a career!


Please contact Ms. Comes 330 896-8281 or bcomes@plcc.edu with any questions or to obtain the necessary paperwork.
