Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

> Improve high school graduation rates
> Improve percentages of students seeking and obtaining post-high school industrial certifications, technical college or four-year college degrees.
> Providing the information about and designing programs to address the critical employment needs in our communities.

Since 1990, MEBA has been supported by a virtual "Who's Who" of local community leaders in business, education, civic affairs, government, and military; and has been the primary source of workforce education to educators and students in the public schools we serve. These leaders identify the needs, and MEBA develops the training, programs and resources to meet those needs.
