BTE Warriors: Bring Your Future into Focus

Bridge to Employment

Rutgers University and Johnson & Johnson Technology join Franklin Township Public Schools to launch a Bridge to Employment (BTE) Program. A cohort of 10th grade students entered this 3-year program in Fall of 2020. BTE Warriors will gain college and career coaching, academic enrichment, access to employment skills training, and direct connections to volunteers from Rutgers and Johnson & Johnson. BTE Warriors are developing a strong vocational identity, and the skills needed to succeed on a path to careers in health or STEM2D: Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Manufacturing, and Design.

We are currently seeking volunteers to act as academic tutors and to support BTE Warriors. Submit your information here to get involved:

Keep up with the BTE Warriors on Facebook and Instagram @btewarriors.
