 JA Job Shadow

Introduce students to the world of work by hosting students in your workplace. Students get a "day in the life" of your career!



Young Minds at Work

Young Minds at Work is a brand-new program designed to educate our area’s students about high demand careers (manufacturing/engineering, healthcare, construction/architecture, and hospitality). 7th grade students from Madison County, Madison City, and Huntsville City Schools travel to multiple local businesses to discover new career options while discovering the thriving work world of Huntsville.



For our premier event, local businesses can volunteer to host a YM@W Career Day. During these event days, supporting companies:


    • Showcase their industry and specializations
    • Give a tour through the company
    • Present jobs of all skill/education levels
    • Discuss education qualifications and encourage local retainment
    • Open the door to new interest and potential interns



Open dates for 2010 are May 3-7 and May 10-14. A Career Day takes approximately 4-5 hours during the standard work day. We ask that all material be kept at a 7th grade level, and creativity is very much appreciated. From hard hats to lab coats, students want to experience the industry as much as possible. Now is your chance to introduce students to their future careers!
