Advisory Committees

Advisory Committees

Think Career Tech - Think Partnerships

Hundred of local business professionals volunteer their expertise each year to help the Upper Valley Career Center remain on the cutting edge of industry-specific technology, training and education.
Our students directly benefit from this input while in school and in the future. 

Employers benefit through direct access to youth who are eager to learn and have made the committment to pursue career in their field.
This win-win-win is the basis for Upper Valley Career Center's years of success and meaningful community impact.

Your Knowledge and Experience

Advisory Committees meet twice each school year.  Some Advisory Committee members visit labs, interact with students, and assist with recruitment efforts.  
Others are involved as apprentice sponsors or hire advanced or early placement candidates. 
Certainly all levels of involvement are appreciated.  
We believe the more you know about career and technical education at Upper Valley Career Center, the more your company and the community can benefit.
