Over 4,000 students and countless volunteers have passed through BTE over our 25 years. We have collected their stories and distilled lessons from them for the future of the program.
In honor of BTE’s 25th Anniversary, we conducted a study to isolate 25 lessons from BTE program implementation. This report illustrates our findings.
Motivated by low academic achievement and the unacceptable number of young people leaving school before graduation, Johnson & Johnson established its Bridge to Employment (BTE) initiative in 1992. Written to coincide with BTE’s 20th anniversary, this report takes a look at BTE’s timeline, model, and some individual success stories.
Johnson & Johnson’s highly successful Bridge to Employment (BTE) initiative stems from the use of a common core of scientifically sound school-to-career principles: maintaining high standards of academic learning for all students; providing opportunities for contextual learning; creating links with institutions of higher education; and connecting students with adults in the workplace. This publication explores these and other promising practices.
The Education & Career Plan (ECP) is a user-friendly digital tool that builds on FHI 360’s College and Career Readiness: A Guide for Navigators, which helps both students and Navigators map and track the college- and career-readiness journey. Four versions of the ECP are available, designed to support students pursuing different paths: those in high school, students in 2–year college programs, students in 4–year college and university programs, and those enrolled in certificate programs. Targeted to 21st century needs, the ECP is a living document that integrates college- and career-readiness exploration and preparation in one organized place. By connecting college and career plans, the ECP helps young people identify career interests and goals; connect career goals with specific qualifications, education, and training required for entry into those careers; outline a course plan that helps them meet postsecondary education and career goals; and record activities and accomplishments in both college readiness and career readiness.
