Muskegon Made helps local students find their career passion, graduate with a plan, and connect with future employers.

How They Work

The objective of SHADOWING is to allow students to view "a day in the life" at a real workplace. This is a one-day experience.

How To Apply

Students interested in signing up for a job shadow experience should complete the Job Shadow Request Forms and submit them to their High School counselor.   Students will need to secure an excused absence from their school and provide their own transportation to and from job shadow experiences.

Student Testimonials
