"I have not stopped talking to my parents, teachers, and friends about some of the interesting things I learned from our trip."

What is Job Shadow?
Have you ever wanted to go behind the scenes in a television control room, or tour a state of the art robotics research and development company? Would you like to follow in the footsteps of a cutting edge Engineer, or work side by side with a Neo Natal Nurse?
Job Shadow is an academically motivating experience that provides students with a real look at the world of work while answering the all too common question, "Why do I have to learn this?"
Lynbrook students will have the opportunity to shadow workplace mentors through a typical day on the job. Lynbrook Students will find out what it is like to be a doctor, or a judge, or a chef, or a principal.
Students who participate in Job Shadow:
- Start to identify career interests
- Observe the daily routine of adults in the workplace
- Gain an awareness of the academic, technical, and personal skills required for various jobs
- Make the all important connection between school, work, and achieving goals
Lynbrook students are perfect candidates for Job Shadow!
