A Job Shadow experience is literally spending time “in the shadow” of a person doing his or her job. It immerses each student in the world of work, where they can get first-hand information about job skills and careers. By bringing students into the workplace to see a marketing professional or a health care technician at work, very real and tangible options come alive for them. Job shadowing creates a critical link between education and success. This helps students not only visualize themselves in that work environment but empowers them to identify what educational choices will coincide with that career path.
Great Falls Public Schools Job Shadow Program has been matching students with employers since 2005 and the successful relationships we have built with community business partners is continually growing.
This opportunity is available to all JUNIOR students at PGEC. Seniors that were unable to experience a job shadow their junior year may also be eligible.
If you are currently in Med Prep or Developing Child, job shadows will take place through that class.
There are specific requirements a student must meet to be eligible to participate in a Job Shadow experience. Make sure you have visited with your advisor, Pat Loucks or Jodi Hicks for more information.
