Employment Certificate (Work Permit)

Youth, ages 14 and 15, are restricted by law in the number of hours and times of day they are allowed to work. Additionally, all minors 14 and 15 years of age are required to obtain an Employment Certificate completed by a designated school official. This Employment Certificate may be viewed to be aware of the type of information needed to complete the certificate, but  the Registrar or a Counseling Center official at Norfolk Senior High must complete the certificate, verifying the minor's information and signature. Student presence is mandatory for completion of the Employment Certificate. Arrange an appointment by calling 402.644.2529.

Job Shadowing

Job shadowing is a useful way to learn about a particular job of interest, and involves spending time following a professional as they work. By observing the professional for anywhere from a few hours to several weeks, you can get a better understanding of their particular career. For assistance in arranging a job shadowing experience, contact Mr. Porn in the Counseling Center:

Selective Service Registration

Selective Service registration is required by law for as the first part of a fair and equitable system that, if authorized by the President and Congress, would rapidly provide personnel to the Department of Defense while at the same time providing for an Alternative Service Program for conscientious objectors. By registering, a young man remains eligible for jobs, Federal student aid, State-based student aid in 31 states, Federally-funded job training, and U.S. citizenship for immigrant men. Men must register for selective service one month before their 18th birthday. You may be denied scholarships or a job if you have not registered.  REGISTER AT
