Say Yes Buffalo and the support services they provide are helping to keep students in school and prepare them for post-secondary education.
It is due to the successful efforts of Say Yes that we’re proud to partner with them to build a Business Council.
The mission of the council is to increase students’ access to internships, mentors, career exploration and work experience.
These experiences will cover a sector of disciplines including corporate, non-profit, small business and government entities.
Having a clear vision and career path encourages students to stay in school and helps them set long term goals.
Students with job and internship experience are more likely to have success entering the workforce after graduation.
Furthermore, the Business Council will allow private sector leaders to engage with these students as they explore career options in the region.
The Business Council will enable companies to:
- build their future workforce
- hire the best and brightest Say Yes graduates
- provide Say Yes Buffalo scholars with access to career opportunities they wouldn’t typically have access to
By removing financial, academic, social and health barriers to educational attainment, Say Yes is setting regional students up for success and upgrading the skills in our local job pool.
