OUR VISION: That all students graduate prepared and inspired to thrive in college and in careers.
OUR MISSION: MCBRE is a nonprofit comprised of senior business leaders who collaborate with the top education leaders in Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS). Together, we explore how our organizations can solve leadership challenges. MCBRE also runs programs that help students connect what they're learning in the classroom with the real world so they can translate their emerging skills into meaningful future careers. Visit www.mcbre.org for more information on the organization, our events, and our student programs.
MCBRE was profiled in a 2009 Harvard Business School Case Study as a strategic and innovative business/education partnership model. When several communities expressed interest in starting similar business/education partnerships, MCBRE launched a national program (the 114th Partnership) to help selected communities unite education, philanthropic and business leaders to collaborate toward college and career readiness goals.
THE 114th PARTNERSHIP & SPARK 101: The 114th Partnership, launched in 2011, expands some of MCBRE's most successful models and programs in order to ensure more students around the United States are better prepared and more inspired to thrive in college and in their careers.
