Business Partners – How to Get Involved!

As a member of the IAB, you have the opportunity to work with students in the Smithtown School District as closely as you want, whether that be coming to the regular meetings or donating your time at our yearly events or creating your own.

As of right now these are the programs and opportunities we have in place.  We are always welcome to new ideas and if you have another idea in mind please contact Mary Pat Grafstein, Executive Director at 631-392-5210 or mgrafstein@smithtown.k12.ny.us

Internships

Create an internship that helps our students grow through “hands-on” learning while enabling you to give back to the community and move forward as a company.  Read our Business Reflections  from companies who have offered internships to our students.

You have the option to host an internship for a semester, summer, or full-year. The length and number of interns you take on is all up to your discretion. If your interested, please contact Mary Pat Grafstein. Our diverse students are each interested in different career paths, so whether your a business professional, programmer, doctor, teacher, or police officer we have students willing to learn from you.

Shadowing

Create a shadowing day! Want to give students the opportunity to see how your company or job works?

By allowing our students to tour your company, you give them the chance to meet and learn about professionals in the industry. This opportunity allows our students to learn what jobs are in demand in today’s economy and if your profession is right for them. Read our past works “NBTY HS Experience” to see how other have offered shadowing days.

Guest Speaking

Have a story you want to share? Help inspire our students by volunteering to guest speak at one of our upcoming events or in the classroom to small groups of High School students. Our students are eager to hear about your career path; where you went to college, what you majored in, why you applied for your current job, what duties it holds, and your favorite words of wisdom.

If you’re interested in guest speaking, please contact Mary Pat Grafstein at mgrafstein@smithtown.k12.ny.us to discuss a date, time and place & how you can get more involved!
