WJHS Internships - Applied Education Leadership (AEL)
The Applied Educational Leadership (AEL) course is designed for students in Grade 11 or 12 who are on track to graduate on or ahead of time. Students are approved and assigned to work with school staff to build and apply skills in communication, organization, collaboration, and leadership through service and work-based experiences while supporting peers and school-based staff. Under the direction of the approved staff member, Designated Hitters will complete required daily tasks and submit a final report at the end of the semester reflecting on your experience. The AEL course is an in-school leadership experience and allows students to earn 0.5 elective course credit or 5 Student Service Learning (SSL) hours.
- Obtain the Designated Hitter Application
- Carefully review and complete the application and return it to your counselor.
It is imperative that all prospective AEL students comply with Steps 1 and 2 above. Because selection is based on an interview and approval of the application, students should select an alternate class in case they are not accepted to the program.
