For over 25 years, Johnson & Johnson employees have been actively involved with the company’s Bridge to Employment programme, to mentor, inspire and help 14 – 18 years olds pursue higher education.

Mumbai: Serving communities by providing means of quality learning, employees of Johnson & Johnson India recently hosted the 2018 Charity Food Festival. In support of the ‘Bridge to Employment’ (BTE) initiative, sixteen Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices leaders in India, along with their spouses cooked and set up food counters at the Mumbai corporate office, which raised INR 2 Lakhs. All the proceeds of the event are being used to support scholarships for 30 deserving students from economically deprived families, to pursue higher education.

For over 25 years, Johnson & Johnson employees have been actively involved with the company’s Bridge to Employment programme, to mentor, inspire and help 14 – 18 years olds pursue higher education, excel in academics and broaden their career aspirations in the field of health and science globally. Over 75 BTE sites have been established in disadvantaged communities across continents, where Johnson & Johnson employees, in partnership with a high school or an institution of higher education, are actively involved in all program aspects - from program design to community partner selection. To date, more than 4,000 students globally, have graduated from the program.

Understanding that educated and engaged youth are at the core of sustainable development, Johnson & Johnson aims to enact sustainable and long-term community impact. In addition to academic enrichment activities and opportunities for career readiness and higher education exploration, Johnson & Johnson’s initiatives like the BTE also help students to achieve their full potential through activities that help in building their self-esteem, self-discipline and interpersonal skills.
