Students in the Danbury Early College Opportunity program meet with mentors

For the second time since the program began this fall, 100 students enrolled in the Danbury Early College Opportunity at Danbury High School met with their mentors to learn about the business world, how to work in teams and how to foster creativity. 

 

The students met with mentors from Pitney Bowes and NewOak on the Westside campus of Western Connecticut State University on Thursday to complete the marketing campaigns they started at their first formal meeting in October. The topics focused on technological and digital citizenship issues, such as cyberbullying and texting while driving. 

 

Five students and one or two mentors made up each of the working groups. 

 

The degree program is a partnership Naugatuck Valley Community College in which high school students incorporate college-level courses. They can expect to complete the Associate Degree in four, five or six years.
