North Carolina’s businesses INVEST human capital (time and talents) to connect and engage directly with students, teachers and principals in the classroom and in the boardroom.
Our members INSPIRE teachers and education leaders to partner with businesses to directly influence NC’s workforce pipeline and our next generation of innovators through projects.
The North Carolina Business Committee for Education delivers INNOVATIVE responsive, hands-on programs that enable students and teachers to have real life experiences with businesses across the state.
Our company has benefitted from our Students@WorkSM and Teachers@WorkR involvement. We truly believe in the benefits of training and education for the community as a whole and for workforce development.
We support NCBCE as the premier action-oriented, statewide organization where businesses can convene to address and support education regardless of size or location. Because the organization is sponsored by the Governor’s office, we can ensure that education priorities are supported at the highest levels of state government.
“We believe it is important for business and education to partner in helping our students and parents understand what jobs are available, where the future of work is headed and what skills need to be acquired to meet these needs. Caterpillar partners with NCBCE on its annual Students@WorkSM and has found it a fantastic way for students & schools to learn about the diverse range of careers available at Caterpillar and for us to learn and engage with students and educators.”
Programs like Students@WorkSM and Teachers@WorkR give us the opportunity to talk to students and their educators about the skills we need from our present and future workforce. We greatly appreciate the opportunity to work with NCBCE to improve students’ understanding of how they will be able to apply what they learn in school to a career later in life.
We are taking Youth Advocacy Board member applications through October www.statefarmylab.com/about-us/apply/the-board/. We will be handing rolling out our teen driver initiative with High school grant opportunities on September 9th at www.celebratemydrive.com/home
As past Executive Director of NCBCE during Governor Hunt’s last two terms (1994-2000), I know how powerful robust business-education partnerships can be in improving both public education as well as a communities vitality. As a small leadership consulting business, I really enjoy partnering with RTI International and the Durham Public School in designing and delivering their Students@WorkSM program.
