Jefferson County Business Education Alliance
The Jefferson County Business Education Alliance (JCBEA) seeks to connect business and education communities to create an outstanding workforce for today and tomorrow. With an emphasis on utilizing existing tools and resources to create new opportunities for students, teachers and business leaders, the program is developing mentorship, career experience and workforce skills opportunities for the nearly 40,000 middle and high school students in Jeffco Public Schools.
Both JCBEA and Jeffco Schools Foundation are nonpartisan, apolitical nonprofit organizations working to support our students. JCBEA is governed by a board of directors including business leaders, all Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce Directors, Career and Technical Education District staff, and other organizations and groups that support bright futures for Jeffco students. Jeffco Schools Foundation was the fiscal sponsor for JCBEA while it sought its own 501c3 status from the IRS, and currently serves a member of the JCBEA board to ensure a successful transition from a nonprofit project to a nonprofit organization. Each board member is required to make a minimum contribution to the new nonprofit organization and JCBEA receives additional funding from a variety of community organizations and businesses.
Jeffco Schools Foundation has worked in partnership with a variety of economic and education organizations in Jefferson County. Click here to visit the JCBEA website.
