During the week of October 29, New Jersey community colleges and county vocational technical schools will showcase some of the outstanding joint CTE opportunities they offer to prepare high school students and young adults for careers in high-demand industries. These career programs are examples of what could be funded by the Securing Our Children’s Future bond referendum – Public Question #1 on the November 6 ballot – if approved by voters.

Brookdale Community College President David Stout will participate in a panel discussion on preparing individuals for careers in the hospitality industry.
