What is Cooperative Work Experience?

Cooperative Work Experience (CO-OP) is an academic focused learning opportunity that allows students to obtain professional work experience while still in high school or college. It is a unique opportunity for students to apply their classroom learning to "real world" settings and situations. Co-ops are developed through a partnership among the student, educational institution, and a business or organization. Co-ops are most often directly related to a student's program of study and offer credit upon successful completion. 

High School Career Technical Education Programs 

CO-OPs are an important piece of high school Career Technical Programs (CTE) because they allow students to use their classroom knowledge in a work setting while gaining connections within the industry. Co-op opportunities may be available for high school students enrolled in the following CTE programs:

Nestucca High School 
Neah-Kah-Nie High School 
Tillamook High School
