Trenton High Students Get Hands-on Lessons about the Business World

A big part of what NJBIA does is advocating for workforce development policies, particularly those aimed at preparing students for entering the workforce or starting their own business.

Last Friday, NJBIA staff did more than just advocate; they put workforce development into practice by participating in a daylong skills-building session with about two dozen students from Trenton High School.

“You are our future workforce,” said NJBIA President and CEO Michele Siekerka to the students as she welcomed them to the association’s headquarters. “It is so important that we make sure there are jobs for you, and, on the other side, we need to make sure your skills match the kind of jobs that our companies need.”
