"LINKING SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY"
The mission of the Wake Forest High School Business Alliance is to link the resources from community stakeholders to enhance the School-to-Career transition of every student, as they become responsible, productive citizens and leaders within the community.
The Business Alliance is comprised of business representatives, students, parents, and community volunteers. We collaborate to provide the resources to support the Wake Forest Student community as they become critical thinkers and reflective learners. Our goal is to assist students in developing an attitude of caring and compassion, a demand for inquiry and understanding, and a desire to contribute in a constructive way to the building of stronger communities, both locally and globally.
The Wake Forest High School Business Alliance is a collaborative partnership between business leaders throughout the community and educators at Wake Forest High School. The Business Alliance provides support and workplace realities for teachers and students. The career and life expertise of business leaders provides students with the relevancy between education and future careers. The Wake Forest High School Business Alliance meets on a monthly basis (2nd Thursday of the month) to develop action steps towards developing students who are college, career, and citizenship ready.
The Wake Forest High School Business Alliance provides expertise, contacts, and service to Wake Forest High School students. Through the support, dedication, and commitment from our volunteers, we are able to provide a variety of opportunities to our students that help them understand the skills needed to become successful in their future.
Business Partners are an integral part of the educational process at Wake Forest High School. We are always looking for new and exciting business partnerships.
