Job Shadowing


Groundhog Job Shadow Day is a unique initiative dedicated to giving kids job shadowing experiences. In February 2016 students in the Heart of Texas will “shadow” a workplace mentor as he or she goes through a normal day on the job,  getting an up‐close look at how the skills learned in school relate to the workplace. 

Groundhog Job Shadow Day is the joint effort of the Heart of Texas P‐20 Council, Greater Waco Chamber of Commerce, Waco Business League, and Prosper Waco. McLennan Community College, Texas State Technical College and school districts in the Heart of Texas Region are also partners prompting this event.

Job Shadowing is a win‐win situation for all involved.

Job Shadowing for Students/Educators:
• Provides an answer to the question “Why do I have to learn this?”
• Demonstrates the importance of academics in reaching college and career goals.
• Helps motivate students to learn by demonstrating the tangible applications of classroom lessons.

• Helps prepare the future workforce
• Shows students career possibilities in different industries
• Demonstrates tangible commitment to supporting and improving the community.


Job Shadowing for Employee Mentors:
• Creates a feeling of personal satisfaction that comes from mentoring a young person
• Offers a chance to share knowledge and skills
• Provides the opportunity to help a child become a successful adult
• Could lead to a long-term mentoring relationship
