Delta Job Shadow

Written by allysonfletch on . Posted in JA High School Programs

Delta Airlines hosted Students from Kearns High School this March for JA Job Shadow.

JA Job Shadow in a hands-on program where organizations invite high school students to their place of business to the spend the day learning about not only the organization as a whole, but the variety of job and career opportunities available within that organization. They also share with the students the skills and education required to obtain those careers.

Job Shadow opens students eyes to the many possibilities available and exposes them to careers that they may not have realized were possible.  Students from Kearns High School were able to experience first hand all that Delta has to offer at the Salt Lake City Airport, and what students wouldn’t be awe and inspired by spending time in the cockpit, in the engine and on the tarmac!

Thank you to Delta for making this event possible and giving Kearns High students such a unique and unforgettable experience!
