DAC NW held 3 separate Career Mentoring Days this year and helped nearly 100 students find our about jobs they are interested in and what is needed to get them.

A typical day starts out with an orientation breakfast and some information about where they are going and what questions they should be asking once on the job site. Three hours of job shadowing with their mentors involves a lot of hands one and behind the scenes tours. From manufacturing t-shirts, becoming a reporter or photographer, to lab work, the career choices are as diverse as these kids.

New this year was one held in Spokane. A highlight was a student with a disability getting to job shadow a professional photographer who also has a disability. The peer to peer aspect is wonderful!  Plans are already in the works for another one next spring.

The students return for a lunch with their mentors, and some interview skills, resume tips and more. To wrap up the event, notes were taken so more great ideas can be incorporated into the events next year.
