Workforce NOW presents
Empower young people to own their economic success  


James Monroe High School and Fredericksburg Regional Chamber of Commerce have collaborated to establish the Fredericksburg Business Preparatory Alliance, a job-shadowing program for students enrolled in the GEAR UP Virginia post-secondary readiness program. This program will provide an avenue for students to conduct meaningful career exploration activities.  


You will have the opportunity to invest time and mentorship through authentic professional experiences for students from the City of Fredericksburg and to best position our young adults for business and/or career success after high school. 


The job shadowing assignment should provide a ½ to a full day experience, it should offer an opportunity for students to observe day-to-day responsibilities in a career field of their interest and provide a chance for dialogue with on-site professionals.
