Johnson & Johnson Consumer
In September 2021, Johnson & Johnson expanded its BTE initiative in the United States. Johnson & Johnson Consumer in Skillman, New Jersey partnered with The College of New Jersey (TCNJ), and Ewing High School (EHS) to collaboratively design a new BTE program in the Ewing, New Jersey community.
Targeting 50 student enrolled in their final 3 years at EHS in the 2021-2022 academic year, the vision of the BTE Ewing program is to ensure that participating youth have the college and career readiness skills that are required to succeed and thrive in post-secondary education and be gainfully employed in STEM2D careers or healthcare sectors.
Program activities have been designed to support both the short-term and end-of grant outcomes. Throughout the BTE program each partner will collaboratively provide a structure for academic and work-based learning with measurable results and will expand student knowledge of the STEM2D sectors and strengthen higher education pathways. Program strategy focuses on developing the following four areas: Academic Enrichment, Career Exploration and Readiness, Higher Education Exploration and Preparation, and Community Engagement and Youth Leadership.
