Local, Regional, & National Partners
As a business organization, it is important to us and our members that our students leave high school with the tools and skillsets they need to either enter the workforce or go on to higher education or vocational and technical education. They are our future workforce and our future leaders. Thanks to the work of you and your team, I am confident that our area students are being provided with opportunity’s to explore careers options, develop leadership skills and learn from experienced mentors, what it takes to be successful after high school.
Our shared mission of connecting students has been outstanding as Biogen has hosted 2500 students from the partnership since that first connection. Working with the School to Careers Partnership has been a particular pleasure due to the level of professionalism, speed of response and attention to detail. Selecting the right teachers has also been key in Biogen realizing a positive return on investment.
One highlight is the Bio-Engineering Symposium that brings select students for an intense experience. Including a teacher training fellowship as part of the Symposium is a brilliant way to not only inform the students but also continue to inspire teachers.
I look forward to a continued relationship with Katherine and the School to Careers Partnership fulfilling our mission, and hers, to get students excited about Stem careers.
The School to Careers Partnership has given students a unique opportunity to come through our doors and interact with Boston Children’s Hospital nurses. Over 600 students have been to our hospital since they’ve started attending the panels.
As I observe the students in the auditorium I can see how impactful this experience is for them. Through the interactions between the nurses and the students, we are able to answer questions and debunk many misconceptions that exist about the role of the nurse. We also ensure to highlight the critical role nurses play in the delivery of healthcare to pediatric patients. Finally, we emphasize the importance of working as a team and understanding that patient care today is a collaborative and multi-disciplinary effort.
