Butler Tech received a large grant from the Mitsubishi Electric America Foundation (MEAF) in 2019. The funds were used over three years to help 22 school districts across the nation replicate Butler Tech’s successful Project LIFE program model. To date, there are now 33 Project LIFE programs across the United States and even Winnipeg, Manitoba in Canada!
One of the most recent replications occurred in rural Georgetown, Ohio with a team of passionate professionals that included personnel from Southern Hills Career Tech Center, Brown County Educational Service Center, and Brown County Board of Disabilities.
Butler Tech’s Project LIFE National Replication Team recently received a national list-serve communication from our friends at MEAF, sharing the story of a relationship that has formed between the Project LIFE Program at Southern Hills CTC and the Mitsubishi Electric Automotive America (MEAA) plant in Maysville, OH.
“As you can imagine, it is extremely satisfying to see that our unique efforts to provide high-quality transition-to-employment programming for youth outside of our own walls are yielding such wonderful results,” shared Reena Fish, Project LIFE Replication Coordinator.
