Young men discover career paths during JA’s Reverse Job Shadow

Students at Eugene Butler Middle Young Men’s Leadership Academy spoke with local professionals and learned about work life, day-to-day job responsibilities and what it takes to be hired for those jobs during JA’s Reverse Job Shadow on November 20.

Junior Achievement’s JA Boy$ program brought the event to the school and recruited area businessmen to provide insight and advice to the boys attending Young Men’s Leadership Academy.
