Pride Shadowing Program
The PRIDE Shadowing Program is an opportunity for students to explore possible career fields and gain exposure to the professional work environment. Participants will visit a host organization for one day and learn first hand how classroom learning can be linked to career choices and further educational goals. Shadowing can help students obtain knowledge that comes only from being in the job setting.
