Each year, BEPAC hosts a recognition breakfast to honor partner organizations that commit resources to help prepare students to meet job market needs, identify viable career pathways, support lifelong learning and become productive members of the community.

BEPAC is an organization that serves as a sounding board to the Superintendent of Schools for Cecil County to identify strengths, needs and trends in the area of job readiness and student success upon graduation from high school.  Its mission is to promote quality education in the Cecil County Public Schools to prepare students to meet job market needs, select satisfying careers, and be good citizens in our community.  The collective talents of the organization (comprised of industrial, technology, financial, retail and manufacturing representatives in our region) provide an invaluable resource to the support of Cecil County students’ preparation for the world of work in the twenty-first century.  For more information, call 410-996-5456 or visit

APG Federal Credit Union operates with the philosophy of “people helping people.”  Emphasis on education and financial independence is a primary mission.  In 2011, 80% of community outreach was dedicated to youth financial literacy programs.  Nearly 430 sessions brought face-to-face instruction to more than 10,150 young people.
