CaƱada College STEM Student Shadow Program

The STEM (Science Tech Engineering Math) Center provides wrap-around support to enable our students to transfer to four-year universities as STEM majors and succeed in STEM careers.

What is Job Shadowing?

As the majority of our students do not have family members who work in STEM fields, job shadowing allows students to experience what working in their chosen field entails.  Students are partnered one-on-one with a professional and have a chance to try out “a-day-in-the-life” of a STEM professional.

What is the Commitment?

Each participating employee will be asked to host a student on one day or two different students over two days. Company volunteers will be matched with a student who has interest in his/her career. Students will spend a day with this employee to experience their daily routine. Volunteers do not need to prepare anything or alter their daily work schedule. Students are coached to be non-intrusive, allowing volunteers to remain productive while being shadowed. Students will arrive at approximately 9:00 AM and will leave at approximately 3:00 PM (to be determined by company and transportation logistics). We ask volunteers to spend lunchtime with their shadows – this will allow volunteers to share their educational and career experiences, providing valuable mentoring to students.

Why Should My Company Participate?

This is an excellent opportunity to give back to the community and help build the pipeline of future STEM professionals. Spending time with these talented and motivated students will be a rewarding experience for employees.

Dates: April 3 & 4 (Wednesday and Thursday)

Times: 9:00 AM-3:00 PM (Approximate- to be decided upon by employer and transportation logistics)
