Want to learn more about the Junior Achievement Job Shadow program?
The Whatcom Business Alliance has partnered with the Junior Achievement.
On February 7, 2018 the Whatcom Business Alliance (WBA) launched the Youth Engagement Initiative at a kickoff event attended by five area high schools with over 250 students in attendance.
Connected with the launch of the initiative is a partnership with Junior Achievement (JA) that will bring JA Job Shadow curriculum into the area high schools. This curriculum includes discussions about job hunting, resume writing and interview skills. The key element of the partnership is to give students an onsite visit to a local business to see first-hand job opportunities and to interact with human resources departments. Strategic Planning is underway for additional activities that will complement efforts to bridge the business community with educators, students, and parents.
