Local organization dedicated to "bridging the gap between education and employment."

We have exciting news about the BBC job shadowing program! This year we have seen a huge increase in requests. We have been working to streamline the process to decrease turnaround time between when the request is submitted and when the placements are finalized and sent to the students and schools. Here is the process:

1. Go to

2. Download and sign the permission waiver and liability form on the site.

3. Come back to to fill in the job shadowing request form.

4. Before the student can submit the form they MUST upload the permission form to the website. They will then receive an email with their responses. This is how students know the form has been submitted.

5. If there is additional paperwork we will let you and the student know. Once all paperwork is turned in to BB2C, we can work on the request.

6. Once the placement is finalized it will be emailed to the appropriate school contacts and the student.

There are several new requirements that have come up from hosts. For example, for Camden Clark: 1. To shadow in the OB department students must have the following vaccines: T-dap vaccination, flu, and Hep A. 2. To shadow in the ED: a flu shot is required. In an effort to offer students a placement with fewer requirements, Suzy has developed a relationship with Welch Urgent Care and Wellness in Caldwell. For those wanting to shadow a nurse practitioner, pediatrician, or nurse to name a few can go there if transportation is feasible. Also, students will be able to shadow one placement a semester. This gives them the opportunity to shadow in the fall, spring, and again in summer if they wish to do so.

The Sixth Annual Family Career Awareness Day will be held Thursday, October 17, 4:00 - 7:00 PM, in the Washington County Jr. Fair Building. The event is open to students in grades 7-12, and their PARENTS! The purpose of Family Career Awareness Day is to increase awareness and knowledge of potential career opportunities by showcasing local businesses to students and PARENTS. Our hope is to especially engage parents in the event, since we know from 10 years of student surveys that mom and dad have the most influence on a student's career decision, right behind personal experience. Students and parents can visit over 50 local employers together to learn what these careers entail. Free food and door prizes!!
