Arts & Communications Committee
This committee takes students’ artistic side into consideration for business decisions. This is beneficial to both businesses and students. Students have an opportunity to use their ability to explore how they can apply it to the business world. Businesses help to steer students in the directions of careers such as digital design or game design. By getting involved in this committee, businesses could gain possible interns, if the students are involved in the art community. Businesses can also keep in touch with the community and benefit from other members.
Career Tracks Committee
This committee helps to focus students in appropriate career directions. Business owners can help students in this decision by presenting what their own career path has been, and optimistically influencing students on their career choices. This is both beneficial to students and businesses, for students may be guided in a path they wouldn’t have thought of and businesses may extend their career field’s reach and create bonds with students while doing so. This committee teams up with the Counseling personnel in our High Schools to choose students to attend our annual Female Power Brunch. They assist in running the annual Internship/Job Fair for Youth of Smithtown and they connect with the International Connections Committee to gather speakers for International Career Day.
E-Commerce & Entrepreneurship Committee
This committee allows students to learn about the overall business world and the power of owning their own business, both virtual and real. This committee serves as the liaison to the Virtual Enterprise classes at both East and West. Business owners are needed to mentor the students on the tactics of owning businesses, including the technology needed to be successful, accounting and finance advice, as well as and how to get their business the top. Business owners should join this committee so they can pass their leadership skills down to the next generation of entrepreneurs!
Technology & Science Committee
This committee is very involved with the school’s technology department. Students who are interested in this field will benefit greatly from the involvement with representatives from the industry. The technology and science sector is growing exponentially over the past years and representatives are needed to update our upcoming students on the current and future projects that the industry is involved with.
