A PARTNERSHIP THAT WORKS

The Berks Business Education Coalition (BBEC)  is a partnership between Berks County businesses and the education community. The BBEC applies the resources and expertise of the business sector to particular initiatives designed to advance student competencies and promote lifelong learning.

BBEC sponsors initiatives to engage students directly in the workplace, to experience first hand the culture and expectations of the college environment, and to promote broadened awareness of career opportunities across the spectrum of business and professional endeavor.

MAKING IDEAS HAPPEN

STUDENTS INTERACTING WITH BUSINESS

The Berks Business Education Coalition annually organizes and facilitates a program for students beginning high school to learn about Berks County businesses in the fall.  Students gain “boots on the ground” information about a business and the expectations employers have for a good employee.

The day begins with a morning assembly and concludes with a field trip visit in class size groups to one of 25 participating Berks businesses.
