Presentation to Employers. School to Work: Raising Standards in New York State.
Hudson River Center for Program Development, Glenmont, NY.
This document contains materials for use in conducting a 1-hour presentation on school-to-work (STW) programs in New York State for area employers in order to elicit their support for the state's STW initiative and encourage them to share information about the initiative with others in their communities. The document begins with nine tips for delivering the presentation. Provided next is a suggested script for presenters that addresses the following topics: (1) the history and objectives of STW; (2) key principles of STW; (3) ways STW benefits employers (STW can help students develop the high-level skills needed to build a quality workforce; when workplaces are connected to the classroom, a talent pool is developed; STW can help businesses compete while simultaneously enhancing their public image; students need to connect their education to making career dreams come true); (4) common myths regarding STW and facts dispelling them; and (5) employers' role in STW (become visible and active partners; participate in ways that make sense for their business; support their employees' efforts as parents and workers; sustain their efforts). Twelve transparency masters, seven handouts (including a 12-item bibliography of STW resources), and a sample evaluation form are also provided. (MN)
