Graduating senior class

Local Business Can Help!

We are targeting local employers that might be interested in allowing graduating seniors an opportunity to job shadow or intern at their business. This request is coming about because of new Profile of a Virginia Graduate requirements outlined by the Virginia Department of Education.

Their website states “The Profile of a Virginia Graduate describes the knowledge, skills, experiences and attributes that students must attain to be successful in college and/or the work force and to be “life ready.”

This initiative provides an opportunity for employers to expose many students to area industries; become mentors in the community; and increase recruitment possibilities. The students are rewarded with a better understanding of the workforce expectations and career focus.

In the survey below, please let us know your interest.
