Linking Education to Careers in Northeast Mississippi


At the request of CREATE, a regional foundation, MDC is helping design an industry-funded, tri-county initiative in Northeast Mississippi to build a career readiness system anchored in K-12, connected to postsecondary education, and accessible to all students to spur local workforce development and living wage jobs. Toyota Wellspring Education Fund created a $50 million endowment and CREATE is providing backbone support to this cross-sector initiative, now in its early stages of development.
