CBT College Celebrates Another Year Alongside KAPOW

  • Miami FL, (May 19, 2015) CBT College is proud to celebrate another year with KAPOW at the 2015 Partner Recognition Dinner and Awards. The event recognized those businesses, community volunteers and teachers that participated in the KAPOW program this school year and dedicated their time and efforts to the youth of our community.

    KIDS AND THE POWER OF WORK, a program of the National Child Labor Committee, is a national network of business and elementary school partnerships which introduces students to career awareness through professionally developed lessons taught by business volunteers in the classroom. In addition, students make one visit to the workplace to participate in hands-on activities. KAPOW lays a foundation for young students, introducing them to work related concepts and experiences that can be continually reinforced throughout the formative years. Founded in 1991 by Grand Metropolitan and the National Child Labor Committee, KAPOW is now operating in 30 communities, serving a diverse population of 50,000 students across the country.

    CBT College, a family owned and operated private college in South Florida, has partnered with KAPOW for the past 7 years. With campuses in Cutler Bay, Kendall, Miami, Hialeah and Miami Gardens, staff and faculty of the college have volunteered to support and impact students in their respective areas through the KAPOW program and its learning opportunities.
