SHYLI's Workforce Development Strategy
SHYLI's Job Shadow Day
Program has been held on three islands: Hawaii, Lanai and Oahu. This one-day experience
helps translate youth passion with practical experience in the job market.
We give youth a positive experience of the world of work, promote a good work ethic, and develop long-lasting relationships that contribute to the island and global economy. Youth are strategically matched for a day with business, government and academic professionals so they have first-hand experience about jobs in their fields of interest. SHYLI workshops prepare students to maximize these mentoring experiences. Youth research potential career pathways aligned with their personal and professional dreams. They learn first-hand about being a leader in today's world. SHYLI is helping to build a local green workforce. SHYLI's goal is to give young people an opportunity to learn about career pathways to 21st century and STEM sustainability jobs. From engineers and marine biologists to tech/computer science coding, sustainability takes a whole village of people with a wide variety of jobs and careers!
Oceanit hosted the SHYLI Job Shadow Day Reception 2014-2016. In
2015 Job Shadow Day was a whole week, with 3 different locations: Hawaii, Oahu and Washington D.C.
In 2014, Oceanit hosted a joint reception with the University of Hawaii's Hilo Chancellor's Offices. In 2013, Kona-Kohala Chamber of Commerce hosted a reception.
At SHYLI's Design Sustainable Hawaii Forum youth share their projects with Hawaii's leaders and vision for their future. This multi-faceted, project based learning program strategically builds workforce development.
