Involvement of External Partners
Staten Island Technical High School has an assortment of business, industry and post-secondary partners, whose collaboration with the school has helped establish the performance standards for the CTE program.
By collaborating with local business, students are able to validate and translate the skills they learned in the classroom by performing them in jobs and internships while employers benefit from the help of interns.
We are currently looking for community members to get involved with our career development program and help our students gain exposure to the professional world. We have different levels of commitment that we are looking for from our partners.
