Liberty High School - Job Shadowing Program
Job Shadowing




Student Information:

THE PURPOSE OF THE JOB SHADOW EXPERIENCE:
A job shadow experience allows a student to explore a specific career of interest by observing an employee perform work duties at a place of employment. During a job shadow, a student can expect to see first-hand the employability and occupational skills necessary to successfully complete a job, as well as the day-to-day workplace functions. A job shadow experience can be a great way to assist a student in selecting a career.
 


Community Partners:
     Liberty High School has begun a Job Shadowing program for the current school year. Started by Coordinator/Facilitator Mrs. Devin Watson and Co- facilitator Ms. Apryl Taylor, in conjunction with the AVID Program and the College/Career center at Liberty HS. It is our goal to provide students with Job Shadowing experience among a variety of job markets in our community to enhance their future career options. Our demographics of students range from low to middle socioeconomic status and lack the resources to provide valuable insight into career options available. We expect that creating a program that allows students to become immersed in a job experience, will allow them to make appropriate choices in high school to lead to life after graduation.   
Community involvement is key to this program’s success. We need companies who are willing to allow students to observe and interview employee(s) at their work locations. Our students will adhere to professional guidelines and expectations, prepare prior for their experience, interview the employee they are shadowing, and reflect on their experience. As a goal, we want them to be aware of job opportunities within our community and be able to establish a path as well as build a network that will lead them to their careers.
If our program goals are aligned with your company’s ability to offer an opportunity for our students to Job Shadow, please contact Mrs. Denia Carmona at ferreilu@osceola.k12.fl.us 407-933-3910 ext. 60222  to receive additional details and important forms to complete. Thank you for considering being part of our program.
