Our Partners: A Key to Our Success

New Jersey county vocational-technical schools thrive thanks to the support of business leaders, colleges and universities and trade unions.

Our thousands of business partners throughout the state serve as mentors, classroom lecturers, employers and advisory board members.

Colleges and universities work with us to offer college-level courses and college credits to our students.

Several New Jersey trade unions are actively involved with our schools to ensure that the training programs we provide produce graduates eligible for apprenticeship.

They all unselfishly give their time, their talent and often their resources to a cause they believe in — our students.

Here’s a representative list of the companies, businesses, government agencies, unions and institutions of higher education involved with our schools.
