Are you looking for inspiration in raising your teen? Seeking ideas to nurture generosity, empathy, or self-awareness in your maturing child? Dr. David Lichtenstein will provide an introduction to social-emotional learning and how it sums up the positive qualities we want to see in our children. Using case examples, research-based practices, and a liberal dose of humor, we will discuss strategies to help children develop self- and socialawareness, interpersonal skills, and responsible decision making. We will consider how this applies at home, in the community, and even for parents themselves.
Microsoft brought their successful event DigiGirlz to Rhode Island for the first time on October 19th. Davies co-hosted one hundred 8th grade girls from 10 Rhode Island middle schools to interact with Microsoft employees, invited speakers, and Davies Pre-Engineering Technology faculty to gain exposure to careers in business and technology. This exciting event provides girls with a full day of hands-on thought-provoking technology exercises including creating an electronic circuit, exploring robotics, and making an app for a smartphone.
William M. Davies, Jr. Career & Technical High School is being honored for Business Workforce Development in Providence Business News’ 18th annual Business Excellence Awards program dinner and ceremony to occur on November 7th at the Omni Hotel. The Business Excellence Awards are PBN’s Premier Awards Event recognizing leadership and general excellence at private and public companies and nonprofit organizations.
At Davies Career and Technical, we are not a vo-tech school. We are creators of innovators for the twenty-first century. Our students see their education in action and put their technical training to use in internships, job shadowing, and placement opportunities through Davies’ dedicated Office of Workforce Development. And through their academic skills, they strive to not only pursue their dreams, but to one day become leaders.
According to a 2016 report from the Fordham Institute in Washington, D.C., the statistics are in and they show: students at career and tech schools are just as likely to pursue a four-year degree and more likely to graduate, enroll in a two-year college, and be employed. Data from the U.S. Department of Education agrees; students with industry credentials - like the ones more than 90% of our students earn at Davies - are more likely to be employed than people with academic credentials alone.
Our mission is to provide a challenging academic and technical education within a safe and supportive environment which ensures every industry-certified graduate is capable of pursuing higher education and becoming a productive participant in today’s workforce.
