The cooperative education/work experience program was a program offered by the Smithers Secondary School in which students combined their educational studies with a work placement in the community. Businesses and instutitions such as the Bulkley Valley Museum offered to be 'work stations' at which the students spent a minimum of 200 hours. The same or a similar program is still offered at the school, but the documents in this file pertain to the 1990s and early 2000s.
Items were kept with the Bulkley Valley Museum's internal records for an unknown period of time before being formally accessioned in May 2020.
