EAST HANOVER, NJ - Summit High School's Jonathan Banks, Daniella Ospina and Isaiah Shakir were part of a group of more than 175 students -- from more than 40 New Jersey schools -- hosted by Novartis at its 19th Multicultural Teen Corporate Mentoring program.

The program is designed to help students make better, more informed career choices.

Students in grades 8 through 12 spent three days in April participating in a range of activities designed to help them navigate future career choices and understand the benefits of working within a multicultural corporate environment.

The Novartis program has mentored more than 1,400 students since it began in 1994. The program was shaped around strengthening team-building skills, introducing deadline-orientated tasks and honing presentation skills.

“This program teaches students about leadership and the importance of mentoring and networking,” said Wanda Sims, Associate Director of Philanthropy at NPC. “I am proud that every student that has participated in this program has successfully enrolled in a college program. Through this program we try and teach our students that with perseverance and hard work they can achieve their goals.”

This year’s student program included a field trip, community service project, a patient-advocacy challenge, and a college and career fair.
