  NCBCE kicks of Students@Work month

State Superintendent Mark Johnson has joined Gov. Roy Cooper and North Carolina’s business community in recognizing March as Students@Work Month. This statewide, career-awareness effort offers students the chance to hear from guest speakers, take part in worksite visits, or engage in virtual programs to begin exploring potential careers. Formerly just a one-week effort, this program has grown in recent years and now spans the entire month focusing primarily on students in middle and high school. Students@Work is made possible by pharmaceutical company GSK and is a partnership between the North Carolina Business Committee for Education (NCBCE) and the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. This year's Students@Work involves 280 businesses statewide and is expected to impact nearly 146,000 students.
