Building Your CTE Program by Leveraging Business and Municipal Partnerships


Over the past three years, McHenry Community High School has expanded interest and access in CTE by creating vast partnerships with local and regional businesses. In this session, presenters will overview the growing MTI (Manufacturing, Trades, and Industry) Career Expo, and how it was created from start to finish. Presenters will also discuss how they have leveraged the relationships built to create advisory boards, seek available grants, and expand and redesign CTE programming to benefit MCHS students.
