Partner with Capital Region P-TECH

Business partners are essential to the success of the P-TECH program. Organizations are encouraged to get involved to enable Capital Region P-TECH to prepare students for the workplaces of today and tomorrow. These partnerships will help shape the type of employees your company needs and desires.

What are the benefits to your company? The partnerships between schools, community colleges and employers will help build a robust talent pipeline and foster economic growth. Business professionals will have the opportunity to mentor students, provide “real-world” experiences related to your business/industry, and work with educators to help develop projects for students. This partnership offers businesses assurance that students are prepared with the skills necessary for success in jobs within their organization and industry. Business will also have an opportunity to engage with students as an “authentic” audience during project presentations and provide work site visits and summer field experiences.
