- Area Businesses and the Shreveport Convention Center.
This is a work readiness event consisting at the high school level. We take 250 area students to different companies in the Shreveport/Bossier area for a JA Job Shadow Site Visit followed by a Student & Mentor lunch at the Shreveport Convention Center. At the lunch, students and mentors complete three challenges as a group, such as the "Needs and Wants" challenge, the "Ethics" challenge, and "Interviewing" challenge, where students will learn what employers are looking for during a job interview. This event is a way of giving students the knowledge and skills they will need to become economically successful after high school graduation.
