Passaic County Technical Vocational Schools honored Worldwide Logistics Group of Paramus as its 2020 Business Partner of the Year

The award is given annually to a county vocational technical school business partner for outstanding contributions to career and technical education. Business partners play a variety of roles, including serving on county vocational technical school program advisory boards, offering opportunities for students to gain valuable work experience, donating equipment, or serving as mentors and role models for students.

Worldwide Logistics has been active business partner with Passaic County Technical Institute’s School of Business Careers logistics program since the 2018-19 school year. As a result of the partnership, Worldwide has provided work-based learning opportunities to several PCTI students. To date, Worldwide has employed seven logistics students, some of whom are still working while pursuing their postsecondary education.

“Not only has Worldwide trained our students in their field of study but exposed them to a corporate atmosphere in which the students learned how to interact in a professional environment,” said Superintendent Diana Lobosco.

As one example of their dedication and commitment to training the next generation, Lobosco said Worldwide offered to continue employment by providing remote access to students during coronavirus pandemic closures.

“Worldwide continues to demonstrate their support of PCTI students, in fact after completing postsecondary training, students have been offered opportunities in their accounting department,” Lobosco said.
