8. Job Shadowing
Another way I’ve kept my oldest son busy the past two summers is by letting him job shadow or volunteer. It was actually his idea, which goes to show in what ways he’s more like his dad, and not me! Last summer he was interested in becoming a veterinarian so he volunteered at the zoo. This summer he’s been busy learning how to code and program at local tech company owned by a neighbor. Talk about learning valuable skills! Learn more about tween and teen job shadowing here.
