Workforce Wednesday Luncheons
MPB will host Workforce Wednesday Luncheons every third Wednesday of each month. The goal of these luncheons is to connect with new partners and potential subjects for content, open dialogue and to keep informed about our state's direction with workforce development including mentoring programs, apprenticeships, work-based learning, and soft skills. These meetings will be held at:
Mississippi Public Broadcasting
3825 Ridgewood Road
Jackson, MS, 39211
MPB will host our second American Graduate Counselors Luncheon on November 15, 2019. This luncheon is part of our American Graduate: Getting to Work initiative. Our focus is to help bridge the gap between education and careers in Mississippi which will result in successful employment. MPB has produced content that can assist school counselors when they are working with students making college and career decisions. We would like to invite you to an informational luncheon at MPB where we will share this information. Please use the link below to register.
