February and the Job Shadow Day are almost here!

January 31, 2017

MHTA — The toughest part of the winter is almost behind us (we hope). The promise of sunnier days and warmer temps is just around the corner. Job Shadow Day is also almost here and now is the time to join in the fun!

MHTA invites you to provide young people with the chance to learn more about the opportunities available in the high-tech fields. A Job Shadow gives students the chance to learn about real workplaces and explore career pathways. The need for more students to pursue STEM in post-secondary studies is vital to our state’s economic and social health. You can help make it happen.

Haven’t joined in yet? If you have not connected with students interested in a job shadow and would like some help in making contact, contact Tim Barrett.

Want to tell us about your experience? If you participated in Job Shadowing before or have arranged to participate next month and would like to tell us about it, contact us.

Can participate this or next week? That’s okay! We want to raise awareness of the need for more workplace experiences during the week, but we encourage folks to arrange experiences all year long. You can use the STEM Ambassadors page on the getSTEM website as a way to connect with educators throughout the entire year.

Need more help or have any questions? Contact Tim Barrett for more information or assistance. Check out getSTEM and the STEM Ambassadors as another way to give back!

Dare to Inspire!
