#B2ESiteSpotlight on Bracknell, UK







Our #B2ESiteSpotlight for November is BTE-Bracknell! BTE-Bracknell is a partnership between My Kinda Future, Johnson & Johnson UK, Ethicon, and Easthampstead Park Community School. The program  launched in Fall of 2018 with nearly 60 students! Here are some highlights from their first few months:

July Launch: Parents, students, teachers and volunteers all came together for a BBQ and introductions at Pinewood.

Their launch included a networking and board games session with the volunteers and students at the school. Everyone got to know eachother, and collectively they selected the theme of their program: Empowerment.

Sept Experiential Session:Volunteers introduced students to work across the Johnson & Johnson companies including Energy, Biopatch/Stapling Devices, Cerenovus, Trauma and Vision Care.
