You can help students become workforce ready. As a business and community leader, the Pima County JTED’s students and staff look to you to help ensure our programs, curriculum, technology, and equipment are relevant and fulfilling the current and future demands of industry. We count on professionals like you to advise, assist, and advocate for JTED Career and Technical Education programs by serving on our Business & Industry Advisory Committee and/or on one of our Program Advisory Committees. Advisory Committees meet on average two or three times a year, so the commitment is relatively small, but the payoff for our students, our community, and our economy are huge.
Our business and industry partnerships create opportunities for students to work along side professionals through paid internships, job shadowing, and unique Master Classes. They also support student participation in Career and Technical Student Organizations such as FFA, FBLA, and SkillsUSA, where students gain leadership skills, communication skills, and work on teams at regional, state, and national conferences and competitions.
