FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Jan. 30, 2006
Job shadow program provides one-on-one guidance
Counselors and teachers are invited to recommend high school students to participate in the City’s new job shadow program. Eligible students must be in good standing and attend school in one of the 15 districts in or adjacent to Kansas City, Mo.
“We are looking for students who are interested in shadowing City employees because they have a serious interest in pursuing particular careers,” said Thalia Cherry, youth advocate in the City Manager’s Office. “Through this program, we are hoping to give students information that will help them make informed educational and career decisions.”
Space for this program is limited and requests are being considered on a first come, first served basis. Granted requests will be confirmed a week prior to the job shadow day.
For more information about the City’s new job shadow program, call the Youth Advocacy Office (City Manager’s Office), (816) 513-1378, or visit www.kcmo.org/youth.
