In 2014, the Louisville Education and Employment Partnership celebrated its 26th anniversary as a collaborative program between the Jefferson County Public Schools, Louisville Metro Government, Metro United Way and KentuckianaWorks.
The Partnership was created to reduce the dropout rate among high school youth. The continuing mission of the Partnership is to assist students, with the help of career planners at their schools, to remain in high school, to graduate, and to make a successful transition to employment and/or post-secondary education or military service. Our success is measured by the success of our students.
Today's high school youth face significant social and economic issues outside the educational system. This collaboration among education, business, and community agencies provides the educational and transitional support for students to continue their education as they face these daily challenges.
