Reverse Job Shadows: Spring 2017


Traditional job shadows bring students to the workplace. JA’s Reverse Job Shadow brings the workplace to students!

We’ve partnered with numerous schools to bring our Reverse Job Shadow event to their students.

Reverse Job Shadows are made possible by the volunteers: local companies, small businesses, and entrepreneurs sign up to share their work advice, experience and answer student questions.

As a result, students become more work-ready by learning about the career opportunities available to them in the local area, and how the educational concepts they are learning each day can be practically applied to the world of work.
