The Job Shadow Program is designed to provide an opportunity for high school students to explore career interests and vocational skills by "shadowing" a Judicial Branch employee during a workday. Students are matched with a mentor at a location as near as possible to their school. To allow students ample time to explore their areas of interest and receive one-on-one instruction, we are accepting one student for each position.
Preparation for Job Shadow Day - School Visit
At least one week prior to Job Shadow Day, the Job Shadow staff may meet with the students at their school to discuss the following:
