The NBITC will be following up on the success of the Class of 2011, with a Class of 2012.  The program will guarantee jobs to a select group of students graduating from New Brunswick highschools in 2012 provided they complete a relevant post-secondary degree or diploma.

The Class of 2012 will be virtually identical to the Class of 2011, which selected 25 students from across the Province, with the exception the Council is looking to increase the number of students selected.

Details on when and where students can apply will be published soon.  In the interim, the Council is would like to hear from organizations interested in participating.  Contact nbitc(a)nbitc.ca to start the dialogue.

NBITC and Rising Stars teaming up to provide mentoring to Class of 2011 February 22, 2012

The NBITC and Rising Stars are pleased to announce they will be teaming up to provide mentoring to students selected as part of the Class of 2011, and Class of 2012. The two organizations will work together to match individual students to mentors, refine Rising Star’s existing mentoring frame-work, and implement regular networking and coaching events for the two cohorts.

“While guaranteeing high-school students jobs in the tech sector through our Class of 2011 program was a great first step, we recognized we needed to do more to help prepare our youth for life in the digital economy”, said Larry Sampson, CEO of the NBITC. “ Working with Rising Stars, who have always had a coaching and mentoring focus, seemed a natural fit.”

According to Craig Gallant of Rising Stars, the partnership “expands the reach of the Rising Stars program while broadening the pool of potential mentors, which will be good for both the students and companies participating.”

Details on the mentoring program, as well as how to apply to Rising Stars – Class of 2012, will be announced shortly.
