Kindle Community Challenge Profile: Lower Cape May Regional High School

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.
