"The work of MELMAC and its partners is vital in creating promising career paths for Maine youth and a strong workforce to help grow Maine's economy."
Jason Judd, Executive Director, Educate Maine
Maine students are graduating from high school at the highest rate in decades. We celebrate this fact, but a closer look at the data reveals that a majority of Maine’s high school graduates are not continuing on to and completing any form of post-secondary education.
In Maine, most students don’t complete post-secondary education.
Maine's shrinking workforce is creating a significant skills gap.
On behalf our of Board of Directors and the staff of JMG, we are grateful to all those involved with the MELMAC Education Foundation for their gifts of time, talent, and data that support Maine’s students of promise. Our partnership with MELMAC has transformed our work as a direct service provider for 10,000 students across the State and as a resource support organization for local school districts. We are so very proud of our partnership with MELMAC and the many ways it has made a difference for the students of Maine!!
MELMAC's support to our schools has been tremendous over the years. Beginning with our college transitions grants and now the ASPIRE Gorham program, we have been able to build a culture in our schools and in our community that supports our children from birth to adult in figuring out what their "Future Story" is. MELMAC has been the glue that has helped our school and community stay focused on this important work!
