JA partners with the Traverse Bay Area Career Tech Center to bring an exceptional learning opportunity to their students! Traditional job shadows bring students to the workplace. The 2nd Annual JA Reverse Job Shadow brings the workplace to the students. This is accomplished by placing volunteers from the business world in every classroom in one school on one entire school day. The JA Reverse Job Shadow format follows the students’ daily class schedule, in which they hear from different speakers in every class. This enables students to see the relevance of every classes’ learning content and how it applies to the world of work. For example, in English they may hear from a marketing professional, in math, an engineer may facilitate the session and a foreign language class may have a professional whose work is focused on the global marketplace. At the TBA ISD Career Tech Center we plan to match the business community with the corresponding fields: Film & New Media, Graphic Arts, Business Careers, Culinary Arts, Information Technology, Web & Game Programming, Early Childhood Education, Public Safety/Protective Services, Allied Health, Auto Body Repair, Automotive Technology, Construction Trades, Drafting & Design Technology, Electrical Occupations, Power Equipment Technology, Skilled Trades, Welding and Fabrication, Agriscience/Natural Resources and Precision Machining Technology.
