Love your job? Host a job shadow.

Job shadowing links schools and businesses by providing students with an opportunity to spend time in a real workplace. Students learn from professionals about the skills and competencies necessary to be successful. They need this kind of connection to businesses, because in today’s service economy they often do not know exactly what adults do at work, as young people did in agrarian and industrial times.

Job shadowing helps students learn about work by taking them behind the scenes in a business, often providing their first real look at jobs in the 21st Century. Spending time at a work site can even help change students’ attitudes about school and about their future

Let's get started!

Job shadows can be offered on behalf of your company or as individual professional.
