American Graduate Counselor's Luncheon
MPB will host two American Graduate counselor’s luncheons in 2019. The goal of these luncheons is to connect with counselors and partners across the state of Mississippi in order to help educate our youth about career paths and training opportunities. We will inform Mississippi middle and high school counselors about the American Graduate initiative and encourage an open dialogue of how the initiative can be further distributed and useful in our schools. The main objective is to share information about high demand skilled careers and training programs in Mississippi.
