The Education/Business Coalition (NEBC) was founded in 1990 as a non-profit organization of educators and business leaders committed to establishing connections between Newburyport Schools and the workplace. One of the first organizations of its kind in New England, the NEBC has since become a recognized leader in providing educators and students alike with opportunities for meaningful, curriculum-based connections between our schools and our business community.
In 2010, the NEBC joined with the NEF to consolidate our efforts, and provide our business partners with a single vehicle for making a difference in the Newburyport Public Schools. Now going by a shorter name, the Business Coalition will continue to support and strengthen its programs, where business partners may volunteer their time and expertise in highly rewarding collaborations with local educators and students.
