JA Job Shadow prepares high school students to be entrepreneurial thinkers in their approach to work. Young people will acquire and apply the skills needed in demanding and ever-changing workplaces. JA Job Shadow:

  • Helps prepare our future workforce
  • Showcases your place of work
  • Enables your employees to easily participate in a community activity
  • It's turnkey; JA provides the materials and training and will help arrange all JA Job Shadow days in advance

Your Place of Business Would:

  • Host a class of (20-40) high school students from 9am-1pm, including lunch
  • Provide a tour of your company
  • Enable students to visit and observe professional work conduct, learn what skills and education they need to earn jobs
  • Help students participate in a series of host-led challenges that bring home lessons from the "real world" of work.

Program Basics

  • Includes three sessions plus a Job Shadow site visit 
  • Average time for each session is 45 minutes and includes a site visit experience of at least three hours
