JA Job Shadow
Would you rather tell students about the workplace or show them? We introduce students to careers through one-day, on-site orientations. It’s an authentic work-world experience for the students… enhanced with classroom preparatory and follow-up activities.
Job Shadowing provides high school students with an up-close look at the world of work by giving them the opportunity to “shadow” workplace mentors as they go through a normal day on the job. Students see the practical applications of classroom lessons carried out by professionals and can connect the importance of school work to their future dreams and aspirations.
Junior Achievement partners with AT&T to provide job shadowing activities through the AT&T/JA Worldwide Job Shadowing Initiative.
Are you a JA classroom volunteer? You can arrange for your students to visit your workplace, too. Curriculum is available.
Be sure to let us know about your day – and share your special stories!
