    • LFHS Open Doors Career Exploration Program Seeking Volunteers/Job Shadowing Hosts

      Lake Forest High School and the Association of Parents and Teachers (APT) will once again be teaming up with professionals to offer students the opportunity to explore a variety of job shadowing and service opportunities through our “Open Doors” Career Exploration Program. Our program gives students the chance to spend all or part of a day in a professional setting to obtain firsthand knowledge about a job they find interesting and may consider as a future career. Thanks to the participation of community professionals, last year 165 Lake Forest High School students were able to spend time with a career host.

      We are on the lookout for more opportunities for this year’s Open Doors which will take place Thursday, November 3 and Friday, November 4, 2016. If you, or the company you work for, would consider having a student (or students) job shadow in your office or, if you are interested in joining the Open Doors committee, please contact Kathy O’Hara at kohara@lfschools.net.

      *Research has shown that job shadowing teaches students many skills that cannot be learned in the classroom and also serves as an important introduction to making informed decisions regarding both college and career selections. Help expand the opportunities, join Open Doors!
