In 2014, 2realise has been elected to manage the Johnson & Johnson Bridge to Employment (BTE) Program for the first time in Australia. Gayna Soulintzis and Rebecca Deep, Partnership Brokers for 2realise, are the Site Managers for Bridge To Employment in Australia.
Johnson & Johnson has run this global initiative since 1992. Bridge to Employment aims to inspire young people to stay in school, excel academically, and elevate their career aspirations. It is currently running in 17 countries.
Forty seven students have been selected from Marsden High School to participate in the program. Through academic enrichment activities, career readiness and exploration opportunities, and higher education preparation, these students will be exposed to various careers and opportunities in the health industry and motivated to pursue higher levels of academic progress and take the steps necessary to build a better future and achieve their full potential.
On the 18th February 2014 Gayna Soulintzis along with Chris Hourigan – Managing Director of Janssen and David Wilkinson – Deputy Vice Chancellor Maquarie University, featured in an interview on ABC Radio National program, Life Matters, explaining the BTE and its benefits.
