Job Shadow Day

The annual Job Shadow Day event objective is to match 10th grade students with mentors in career fields that the students have selected as possible careers. The program is fashioned after the national Job Shadow Day which begins on February 2nd each year. Responsible tenth graders from all of our Beaufort County High Schools (public and private) are asked to submit written responses to questions regarding school and life. Based on those responses, students are selected to participate in the program and are matched with a mentor. Mentors meet their students for a program breakfast before heading out to the workplace for a few hours of exposure to the workplace and mentor’s career. Everyone returns for a luncheon and awards ceremony recognizing the top written responses on the applications. This program is sponsored and produced by the Chamber’s Education Division. In recent years, upwards of 100 students/year have been matched with mentors in career fields such as: Nursing, radiology, veterinary medicine, animal shelter, cosmetology, eye care, police, fire/rescue, attorney, architect, school teacher, church work, retail, dentistry/hygiene, auto mechanics, real estate broker, banking and finance, computers, and TV station. Students often come away from these experiences with a much better appreciation of whether or not such a career might be in their future.   Job Shadow Day 2017 will be held on February 16th.
