The 2023 Summer Institute will be held IN-PERSON.

About the Program

The South Jersey Summer Institute for Educators was started in 1991 to help the education community keep pace with the changes that have occurred in the regional business community, and to give educators the tools to better prepare the future workforce – their students.

 

The goal of the Institute is to build a link between the business and education communities by: familiarizing teachers with key economic, business and public policy issues that impact business and industry; providing teachers with a better understanding of the skills and characteristics their students will need to be successful in the workforce; and, involving participants in team projects to develop curriculum that incorporates the lessons of the Institute in the classroom.

 

The Institute takes a truly unique approach to better preparing the future workforce by targeting educators, who can reach hundreds of students each year, with the lessons necessary to make their students successful in the workplace. In its 30 year history, the Institute has graduated 692 teachers from dozens of schools throughout southern New Jersey, who we estimate have reached more than sixty five thousand students with the messages they learned in the Institute. The business community ultimately benefits by having a pool of better prepared workers.
