Community WOW! held by Citizen Schools [VIDEOS]

posted Feb 4, 2011, 8:03 PM by Unknown user   [ updated Feb 10, 2014, 9:58 AM by Nick Siewert ]

Friday, December 10, 2010 marked the date of a most important and memorable event held at Global Tech - the first Community "WOW!" Showcase presented by Global Tech students and the Citizen Schools group!  Students from the school showcased products, performances and presentations that they created during 10 weeks of Citizen Schools sponsored apprenticeships with architects, NBC executives, finance professionals, Google engineers, NYU students and other professionals.

Global Tech Prep has partnered with Citizen Schools to provide expanded learning days and increase career development at the school from Monday to Thursday each week.  During expanded learning days facilitated by Citizen Schools staff, students join a project-based apprenticeship that allows them to explore various professional and avocational fields.  Professionals from all over the city gather twice a week to mentor and teach students about their fields and provide real-world experience and exposure to potential career paths.  Students respond to these positive role models by applying what they are learning in school to real world problems.

Community WOW!s are celebrations of these unique partnerships.  The December Community WOW! featured student exhibits from the following
apprenticeships: Architecture and Your Imagination, Bringing the Buzz, Dream On, Fashion Forward, Google Bootstrap, iVoices @ GTP, Power Star, Smells Like Success, The Wealth Academy and YouTube Academy. There were also performances by students who participated in the WOrd:
Writing Our Dreams and iVoices@GTP apprenticeships.

We are pleased to share some videos of the event below:
