Got Skills?

How about donating just a bit of your time to help
get the next generation interested in skilled careers?

We have such an urgent need for skilled labor in our area.  Whether it's the construction and service industry, medical services, IT, restaurants, paramedics....you name it, we need it.  This program works to get students interested in these careers by giving them a live experience with someone in the field.

Here’s how it works.

 

Ti-Alliance arranges work site visits for 3-4 students at a time. The students are "armed" with a video camera to interview the workers about how they came to be in that profession, what they like and dislike about their work, how much they make each year, and how the students could get qualified to do that type of work.  The professional gives them a tour of the site, and a teaches them one small skill.  The students can ask questions to create the most interesting material for their peers.  

 

After the visit, the students edit the video and share it with their classmates. We may even be able to live broadcast some visits to include the classmates in the tour and Q&A.  Each of the videos will be added to a video library accessible to students, faculty, and counselors, and we will continue to build the library over time.  Professions covered will include design, architecture, mechanical/civil engineering, excavating, concrete, carpentry, electrical, roofing, masonry, welding, landscaping, tree service, IT, physical therapy, medical services, veterinary services, and others.

 

If you are a professional working in the Ticonderoga Area and would like to share your profession with our students, contact Melinda Fuller at fuller.melinda@gmail.com to get involved.

 

Internships - Connecting Employers with New Talent 

Internships allow students to experiment with careers and employers to "interview" prospective employees.  If you are interested in mentoring a student for an 8-week internship, and potentially finding a great new employee, contact us.

Such a Tiny Commitment for Such a Big Payoff

All it takes is just 1 hour of your time to provide a great service to these students and our community. It is SO fun and satisfying to spend an hour with these kids and their inspired instructors. Who knows, you could be meeting and mentoring your future employees.
