CPAVTS Sponsorship Opportunities
Sponsorship Opportunities Available at CPAVTS
Cumberland Perry AVTS has developed a Business and Industry Sponsorship Program that formalizes partnerships with local businesses, providing benefits to the area employers, the school, and, most importantly, CPAVTS students.
Companies who sponsor a program at CPAVTS make several commitments to the school and students. In addition to monetary contributions towards scholarships or other senior awards, they also offer their facility and expertise to CPAVTS students for cooperative education employment, internships, job shadows, and field trips. Partners also open their doors for a special event for elementary students to learn about their company, their industry, and how a CPAVTS program can provide that career pathway. Lastly, Program Sponsors are active participants on Program Advisory Committees and offer their expertise towards decisions involving curriculum, credentials, equipment, safety, and other aspects of CPAVTS programs to ensure they are meeting the demands of employers.
Sponsors are recognized with their logo placed outside the program door, on the school website, and in the program brochure. They are recognized during the Awards Ceremony in May and are also given access to speak to students about employment opportunities within their company, distribute applications or other company information, and generally recruit students for employment. CPAVTS will also distribute employment information to past graduates on behalf of program sponsors.
Lawrence Chevrolet was the first company to participate in the Business and Industry Sponsorship Program. Lawrence Chevrolet is the sponsor of the Automotive Technology program and has been an eager and active partner.
The HVAC program is sponsored by The Tuckey Companies. Nicole Coy, Human Resources Manager, says “CPAVTS has a strong program with excellent students. The Tuckey Companies feel strongly about educating students in the trades and want to help promote and advance the HVAC, electrical, carpentry, and welding fields in Cumberland and Perry Counties.”
“CPAVTS has access to help mold our future! Working together we can build a strong future for our local community and trades.”
The Business and Industry Sponsorship Program is a win-win-win for students, employers, and CPAVTS. Sponsorships are non-exclusive, meaning that each program could potentially have multiple sponsors leading to even greater opportunities to serve the community employment needs and also prepare CPAVTS students for workforce readiness. Companies interested in program sponsorships should contact the CPAVTS Administrative Director, Justin Bruhn.
