The Berks Business Education Coalition 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.

A Partnership that Works


The Berks Business Education Coalition sponsors initiatives to engage students directly in the workplace, to experience firsthand the culture and expectations of the college environment, to engage educators in summer, business internship experiences, and to provide resources for projects as identified in the schools.

2014 Annual Report

Job Gateway

JobGatewaySM, is part of the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry's initiative to transform the landscape of how job-seekers find family sustaining jobs and how employers find the skilled candidates that they need.

The Berks Business Education Coalition organized and facilitated the "Students Interacting with Business" program, September 22-26, 2014, engaging 4,000 ninth and tenth grade students from across Berks County to learn about the culture of business and those "soft" factors that businesses assess in evaluating a prospective candidate for employment.
