MBAE is leading an issue advocacy campaign to build support for an ambitious proposal to greatly expand high school student access to meaningful college and career pathways. Pathways prepare students for college and the workforce, offering opportunities to earn valuable college credit and/or industry-recognized credentials, and provide career exploration and work-based learning experiences.
Early College is one pathway that evidence shows works to improve college completion rates for students of color and students from low-income households. Innovation Pathways programs give students coursework and experience in a specific high-demand industry, such as information technology, engineering, healthcare, life sciences, and advanced manufacturing. Career vocational technical education is another pathway to good careers. Surveys show parents and voters support increased access to more career connected learning.
MBAE is building a coalition and mobilizing business, public, and political leadership to publicly and actively support policies that will make Massachusetts a national leader in providing student access to proven models and preparing students for success in college and career. The campaign will be a two-year effort to work toward universal student access to college and career pathways.
The Project Manager will work closely with the Executive Director and the rest of the MBAE team to coordinate all aspects of the campaign’s day to day operations and keep it on schedule and progressing with a high level of momentum that engenders a sense of excitement, optimism and confidence in achieving the campaign goal.
