Job Shadow Day

A unique community-building event!

In partnership with the Simsbury Chamber of Commerce, students from The Master’s School experience a day-in-the-life of a business professional in the greater Simsbury community. Students and mentors then meet together at the Simsbury Inn and are joined by Simsbury Chamber of Commerce Board members, Job Shadow Day sponsors, and TMS faculty for a professional luncheon with keynote speaker and local businessman Robert Durbois.

Thank you to all mentors and generous sponsors who helped to make the 2018 Job Shadow Day a successful experience for our students!
