Guest Speaking (40-60 minutes)
Guest Speakers are professionals who visit students in a school setting. Guest Speaker visits are a critical and valuable component of the curriculum and provide a foundation to the students' career awareness. Guest speakers discuss what they like about their jobs, their typical work day, and knowledge and skills required to pursue and be successful in their career. Speakers might also be asked to discuss a specific expertise they have in their field or speak on a specific topic. These visits also give students a chance to ask questions, practice professional behavior, and to elevate their comfort level communicating with professionals.

Assisting with a Classroom Project (40-60 minutes)
The culminating project is a required course assessment component for students for each course. The classroom project demonstrates students’ ability to apply the knowledge and skills they have learned throughout a course in an authentic way that is relevant to their academy’s industry theme. At times, we will request a volunteer to assist students in certain aspects of their projects. this could mean talking about your career path, having students interview you as a professional dietician or accountant, or play a game of Monopoly or Epidemic with the students, or assist them with creating a Public Service Announcement. You will know the specific project before you sign up.

You will also give students feedback on their presentations. You will not be grading the projects. You will just be serving as an outside "observer" to give students opportunities to present in front on strangers.

Host a Field Trip or Work Site Tour (M-F 9am-2:30pm)
Worksite tours introduce academy students to the world of work by introducing them to the environment, expectations, and requirements of the workplace, professions, and industries. Worksite tours allow students to observe the workplace and the people working there, as well as make connections between classroom learning and the world of work. A typical worksite tour is a one-time trip to a company or organization. The tour typically lasts one to three hours during which a group of students spend time with a variety of employees observing daily activities and asking questions about the company, jobs, and industry. Students complete written assignments before and after the worksite tour to connect their experiences to their courses as well as their college and career options.

Participate in a Career Fair at the School
Career fairs bring together business partners from a variety of careers to share information about their company, their job, and what education, skills, and knowledge are required for success in their career. Students navigate the event independently, seeking additional information about careers that they’ve already identified as interesting to them, as well as discover new careers that may or may not be directly related to the academy theme. Students have an opportunity to ask questions of the professionals, practice professional behavior, and elevate their comfort level in communicating with professionals.

Host a Job Shadow
Job shadows introduce students to the environment, expectations, and requirements of the workplace. Job shadowing allows students to observe what a “real job” is like and how the skills they learn in school can be put into action in the workplace. A typical job shadow is four to six hours during which a student spends time one-on-one with an employee observing daily activities and asking questions about the job and industry.

Host a Mock Interview
Mock interviews allow students to practice their interviewing skills through one-on-one interaction with business partners.

NAF also provides parameters for the amount of time spent in the workplace, amount of pay and stresses the need for the internship to be a rich learning experience that provides value to the employer and time for the student to reflect and be assessed on their college and career readiness.
