Bridge to Employment: 25 Years of Helping Young People Excel in School—and Life
Since 1992, Johnson & Johnson’s Bridge to Employment (BTE) program has provided high schoolers with meaningful educational experiences and career prep to help set them up for success as they head off to college.
In the last 25 years, BTE has come a long way: What started as a U.S.-based program has expanded well beyond its domestic roots to encompass over 80 sites in more than 20 countries, including India, Israel, Mexico, South Africa and Spain.
Earlier this year, in fact, Johnson & Johnson India was honored with the prestigious Global CSR Leadership Award for Innovation in Corporate Social Responsibility Practices for its work mentoring 50 underprivileged students in Mumbai through the BTE program.
As the latest class of students graduates from the program on June 21, we're taking a look at the impact BTE has had over the last quarter-century around the globe.
