(2) Work-based learning experiences in a group setting may include, but are not limited to:
(a) Coordinating a school-based program of job training and informational interviews to research employers;
(b) Worksite tours to learn about necessary job skills;
(c) Job shadowing; and
(d) Mentoring opportunities in the community.
