“We would not be here today if we did not receive contributions from Corporations and the int’l trade industry,” said Carol Rowen, CEO & Founder of International Trade Education Programs
Los Angeles – CA — International Trade Education Programs (ITEP) has started off the New Year on the right financial foot receiving donations from four corporations to provide training for jobs of the future.
“We would not be here today if we did not receive contributions from companies like the Bettina Weary Trust, Teekay Corporation, Shell Oil Company, the Watson Land Company, and the international trade industry,” said Carol Rowen, CEO & Founder of International Trade Education Programs (ITEP). “We are so thankful to the business and international community that supports us as we celebrate a decade of providing training programs for jobs of the future.
ITEP received $5,000 from Bettina Weary Trust; $30,000 from Teekay Corporation; $10,000 from the Shell Oil Company and $25,000 from the Watson Land Company.
ITEP programs assess the needs of high schools and the surrounding transportation, logistics and industry needs. ITEP works with schools that need to boost graduation rates, decrease the number of dropouts, and enhance standardized test scores. Students who graduate from the struggling schools rarely had opportunities or motivation to pursue further education or employment.
That’s where ITEP comes to the rescue by designing programs to fulfill those needs, guiding and mentoring students on a career path of current jobs of the future. “They discover a whole new world of career choices they would have never imagined,” said Rowen.
