Training the Trainer
Last week, Katya Brennan of the NHTI Business Training Center's (BTC) Office of Workforce Development became one of a dozen members of the first graduating class of the UNH Cooperative Extension's Economic Development Academy. A hybrid program combining online and live classroom sessions, the four-month Academy program began in August and concluded with project presentations and a Commencement ceremony on November 21.
"I took this program to better understand how economic development affects workforce development," says Katya. Economic development means bringing money into a community and growing it economically and financially. "It means jobs," says Katya. But creating new jobs means may mean creating a need for new skills. Understanding the gaps in training and workforce needs is critical so that the BTC can respond to those needs.
"This program was great for networking," says Katya, "which is important for developing relationships with economic developers in the area. If I have two big takeaways from this experience, it's that economic development takes a lot of patience, and that it's all about building relationships."
Can They Ever Drive!
The Student Life Association would like to thank everyone who helped support this year's Can Drive Competition to can hunger! We had over 350 cans donated through the collaborative efforts of offices, student originations, and the NHTI Community.
The Student Nurses Association won the contest. They left the competition in the dust with 250 points!
The collected items will be donated to the Friends of Forgotten Children here in Concord.
Students Morgyn Soucy, Kaitlin Moody, Emily Dietrich and Kayley Beers volunteering at the Can Drive.
