Job Shadowing

Make an impact in the future of girls by serving as a career mentor. Job shadowing offers girls the chance to learn about a particular occupation or profession to see if it might appeal to them. In job shadowing, a business typically provides an experience for a girl as she accompanies a worker throughout their day to day work schedule. STAY TUNED FOR MORE JOB SHADOWING OPPORTUNITIES.
