Midlands Education and Business Alliance (MEBA) is proud of more than 20 years of successfully connecting students, parents, educators and employers to education and career opportunities in the Midlands.  Since 1991, we have directed collaborative efforts, fostered partnerships, provided training and supplied resources to create the workforce of the future and improve quality of life for the Midlands community as a whole. Our achievements are due to the tireless efforts of dedicated board members, partners, volunteers and staff.

“MEBA is a national model. I have traveled all over the country, and I have never seen a program that delivers as much as MEBA does with the resources they have. It’s a tribute to their board and their staff on what they have done for the Midlands area.”
