"[The business owner] told my boss that she thought what I was doing for him was really great, and even asked if I could possibly run her social media for her as well! It was nice to know that what I do is noticed and also liked by others in the professional field."
-Rachel F., reflecting on her internship experience with Farmer's Insurance

Webster Groves High School students who engage in experiential learning (ExL) through the Chelsea Detrick Experiential Learning Center make meaning and create knowledge through direct experience. By providing students with the opportunity to wonder, design, tinker, collaborate, adapt, and communicate, experiential learning prepares students for the excitement and challenges of their current and future lives.
The Chelsea Center engages students in practicing these skills while also providing support for reflection on their personal, social and emotional growth.
