Leaders for a day
Leaders for a day is a one-day “Job Shadow” experience between a young high school, univeristary or recent graduate student and a manager, director or entrepreneur to live schedules and acrivities in a typical business day.
It is designed to fill the dismatch between the knowledge learned during the academic course and the one required by the workplace.
Some of the guys from all over Italy already submitted to other JA Programs, carefully selected in the light of their motivation and preparation, are matched to high-level experts who, during a whole working day, will involve them in all of their work schedules, letting them to know better their role, and more generally, the (?) structure of which he is part.
This initiative goes in the direction of reduce the distance between school and workplace, making opportunities that encourage youngsters – included in a not propositive nor supportive social and economic context – to take in hand their professional future with awareness, encouraged by the availability to share a first important experience in the workplace with a successful expert.
The aim is to give the young people the chance to make more aware and informed professional decisions, enlarge their network and improve their carrier opportunities.
This program is developed into 5 stages:
- Collection of the interested alumni applications (Application letters and ambitions)
