Fall River Youth Workforce Partners

Multiple Education Pathways Blueprint Initiative (MEPB)


Grant Summary:


The Bristol Workforce Investment Board (WIB) is one of seven mid-size cities awarded $491,666 by the United States Department of Labor to implement a "Multiple Education Pathways Blueprint" (MEPB) grant in the City of Fall River. This two year planning grant will create a more accurate portrayal of the dropout population to shape interventions that address the scale and dimensions of our community's struggling and out-of-school youth population. Strategies will be articulated in a "Blueprint" developed by community  partners and stakeholders. This group, known as "Fall River Youth Workforce Partners," is committed to working together to find solutions developed with "shared vision, common agenda, accountability, and mutually beneficial outcomes."


The MEPB Leadership Team/Steering Committee:


Our Steering Committee will serve the MEPB process as an executive board for the duration of the grant, driving the Blueprint strategy; ensuring the goals and objectives specified in the grant are implemented; providing fiscal oversight, performance review, direction, and technical assistance to the full Partnership. Additionally, the Steering Committee will drive political will to support the full implementation of the blueprint in Fall River, and develop strategies to sustain ongoing growth of multiple education pathway options for the city's growth.
