PRESS RELEASE

GROUNDHOG JOB SHADOW DAY AT THE FEDERAL COURTHOUSE

As part of its community outreach, the district is hosting its fourth annual Groundhog Job
Shadow Day on February 1, 2007, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. From 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m., the court will sponsor a lunch for all participants so that everyone can share their experiences. The Western Division has been paired with a high school in Pasadena.

Groundhog Job Shadow Day (which kicks off in early February, hence the name) is dedicated to giving young people across America job shadowing experiences. It enables one student to shadow a workplace mentor as he or she goes through a normal day on the job, providing an up-close look at how the skills learned in school are put into action in the workplace. Sponsored by Junior Achievement of Southern California, the goal is to provide students across America with a day in the workplace that is educational, inspiring and fun.

The response from court employees has been very positive and participation increases every year.

For further information, please contact the Clerk’s Office at 213-894-8249.
