VOCATIONAL SERVICES
Vision Statement

CJEC's purpose is to promote engineering awareness. The vocational Services committee does this by promoting advancement of science/math education and its application in the engineering profession. CJEC is a partner in the education process. As such, CJEC activities are planned in conjunction with our education partners. The goal is to understand school needs, communicate what the engineering community has to offer, and jointly plan activities to make the best use of the joint resources available. Working with the Volunteers in Partnership (program of the Education Enhancement Partnership, Inc.) reduces the administrative burden otherwise carried by CJEC.

Duties of the Vocational Services Chairman

  • Liaison between the education community and CJEC.
  • Central contact through which the education community may solicit assistance/volunteers from the engineering community represented by CJEC.
  • Communicate engineers' views/ideas/resources to the education systems we serve.
