Helping Students Find Their Way

The wise Mahatma Gandhi once said, “The future depends on what you do today.” And today’s students realize more than ever the importance of networking with professionals, not only for professional development but for personal development, as well.

In 2010, Junior Achievement conducted research on the impact of student job-shadowing and found that of the nearly 500 students surveyed, 90 percent felt that a job shadow experience helped them to be more aware of career options.

Teachers also benefit from having their students participate in job shadowing. JA’s research found that 92 percent of those surveyed stated experiential learning helped to motivate students.

Positive feedback from educators has indicated that JA programs are providing valuable opportunities for their students to improve their communication skills and to independently discover career path options.
