Believe Project.

We believe that education is the foundation of a better life and a brighter future. We want to give back to the local community; specifically programs focused on helping the youth of the area to realize their unlimited potential in the world. In honor of winning Small Business of the year, Boire Benner Group has set up a scholastic fundraiser to celebrate education and Adirondack Coast.

Watch our video below...

Every young mind has a gift. It’s vital that we not only acknowledge that, but work to find out what that gift is and help each child to develop it. They need to be given a chance to believe in themselves, to believe they are truly capable of anything.

By helping youth in a community, you ultimately help the community itself. Reaching and nurturing those young minds in turn creates a more diverse and educated society. This is what we have to do and the challenge we face. This is where we want to help make a difference - and we want others to join us!

Believe in each other.

ADK-PTECH

At ADK P-TECH (Pathways in Technology Early College High School) students earn a high school diploma, an industry-recognized associate degree and gain work experience relevant to a growing field of employment. P-TECH schools create a seamless program for students to learn academic, technical and workplace skills and knowledge that today's employers are demanding. 

Students attend classes at Peru High School during Year 1-3, in "a school within a school" model, transitioning to Clinton Community College (CCC) during Year 4 to complete degree requirements in Years 5-6. 

An exciting development for ADK-PTECH is the Advanced Manufacturing Institute (AMI). The AMI will be constructed on the CCC Campus thanks to a 12.7 million dollar grant through the SUNY 2020 Challenge Grant Program. ADK P-TECH students will have the opportunity to work side by side with CCC students and Industry Professionals at the AMI.
