MPB has resumed Workforce Wednesday's in a virtual format. Our next Workforce Wednesday is September 16, 2020 at 11:30 a.m. We will continue every third Wednesday of each month virtually until it safe to meet in person again.

The goal of these meetings is to convene partners, connect with new partners, open dialogue and keep informed about our state's direction with workforce development.

These meetings will be held virtually via Zoom. Register in advance for this meeting:

Amber Parker

Our guest speaker will be Amber Parker with The Refill Jackson Initiative.

Refill Jackson Mission

The Refill Jackson Initiative is a non-profit with a mission to empower young adults. We train young adults, ages 18 to 24, to be more equipped and motivated to enter the workforce.

Workers need soft and technical skills—and we teach both. Program members learn these skills in a classroom setting and paid on-the-job training. Your donations support our members and make this program possible.
