Massachusetts Helps Students Explore Future Career Pathways

Lynnfield, Massachusetts recently conducted a job shadowing program involving 35 area students, through the Lynnfield Business Coalition with participating companies and institutions ranging from Massachusetts General and Children’s Hospital to the Summer Street and Huckleberry Hill Schools in Lynnfield, the Massachusetts State Police, the Boston Breakers (women’s soccer team) and others in fields including law, hospitality and physical therapy.

According to author William Laforme in his article, Annual Job Shadowing Program Benefited 35 Students This Year, the program continues to offer area students the chance to have a valuable learning experience and to get a better idea of what career paths may be for them.
Programs like these allow students to be directly involved in shaping their futures by experiential learning and career exploration, unique features of career technical education.
