Johnson & Johnson Medical New Zealand
In February 2017, Johnson & Johnson Medical New Zealand, Brothers in Arms, and James Cook High School launched a BTE program for 50 youth (tenth graders in school year 2017) in Auckland, New Zealand. Throughout the three-year program, the partners provided a variety of academic enrichment, career exploration, and higher education preparation opportunities, including:
We are so proud of all our students who put in time and effort to the process. This was no easy decision as we came to choosing our two Ambassadors to the Alliance Building Training Session- ABTS. ABTS is a conference where all the various BTE sites from around the world will meet to exchange their experiences. It was a hearty process where students had to send in a CV, be interviewed by the Interview Panel and were scored through our scoring matrix. We are proud of all those who stepped up and showed leadership and took on the challenge of putting themselves out there! We would have taken all the applicants in a heartbeat if we could! All that to say, our two Bridge To Employment NZ Ambassadors who will get to travel to Lisborne, Argentina are Jolisa and Josephine. We will keep you posted with how things are tracking as we gear up to going to represent!
