With the support of Kindle Auto Plaza, the Lower Cape May Regional Education Foundation has established programs to help students become better prepared for the world of work.
Our “Change a Life Over Lunch” program brings high school and middle schools students together with community mentors experienced in the career of their interest. The foundation provides lunch, and in-service training for school staff who in turn train mentors for the program. More than thirty community mentors have participated impacting more than 100 students to date. A new “Alumni Network” provides opportunities for rising seniors to network with successful alumni via a web based portal as they transition to college and/or a career. The foundation has built a web portal so that secure, supervised communication can occur. Moving forward we see expanded opportunities for students through curriculum based school/business partnerships, training and education programs for parents, and stronger partnership with employers.
