ACED in ACTION ABEC

The Yuma ACED Project began in the spring of 2019 through a collaborative partnership with the Yuma County School Superintendent’s Office, the Southwest Technical Education District of Yuma (STEDY), ABEC, and a number of community and business partners. The Yuma ACED Project is a county wide initiative with eight middle schools participating from the Crane and Yuma Elementary School Districts.
 
The ACED offers 44 career exploration sections impacting approximately 1,500 students. Utilizing a website that integrates CommunityShare provides a method for business partners to support the modules and teachers in the classroom. The ACED also provides collaborative opportunities for local and statewide partnerships that include access to career exploration platforms, curriculum, and professional development.
