Taylor High School

Work & Volunteer Opportunities


There are many opportunities for students to gain direct experience volunteering and in the work place.  Please see below for the detailed information on these opportunities.

Job Shadowing

As part of the Three Rivers District Career Education Plan, Taylor High School provides students in grades 9–12 the opportunity to participate in a job shadowing experience. Each year, students in grades 9–12 will be given one excused day to shadow a job that aligns with their future career aspirations.

The job shadowing experience provides students with a meaningful introduction to the world of work and provides a context for understanding the relationship and interaction between the academics taught in the classroom and the workplace. The student and their parents or legal guardians are responsible for setting up the job shadowing experience. Appropriate paperwork must be completed before and after the job shadowing day. Job Shadowing days will not be considered an absence unless appropriate paperwork and proper procedures have not been followed. 

Work Permits

Work permit forms may be obtained in the Main Office. Forms must be completed and returned to the Main Office. Any student under the age of 18 years old who is working must have a work permit on file. Students who are 14 years or older may apply for a work permit. The cost of a work permit is $7.00 payable by check or money order to Taylor High School. A re-issued work permit (second or different job) is $4.00.
