It’s almost time for Job Shadow Day 2005. On February 2, 2005, more than 1 million young people will have a chance to explore their futures when they “shadow” workplace mentors as part of the eighth annual Groundhog Job Shadow Day initiative.Job shadowing is a yearlong national effort to enrich the lives of students by acquainting them with the world of work through on-the-job experiences and a carefully crafted school curriculum that ties academics to the workplace.
Last year, students experienced more than 100,000 workplaces throughout the nation. For additional information, including a How-to Guide, brochure, and an online training presentation on how to coordinate job shadowing, visit JobShadow.org.
