This school year, MEAC co-sponsored with Evanston Township High School (ETHS) seven virtual career pathway panel events each attended by 30-50 students and others.
Mayor’s Employer Advisory Council (MEAC) is a voluntary organization chartered in April 2018 and launched in June 2018. It was conceived by the Mayor of the City of Evanston as a way to bring local employers and the local high school into closer alignment. The goal is to develop career pathways with local employers for local high school students and to enable the students to stay in Evanston after high school graduation. Since the launch, the focus has broadened to include young people up to the age of 25 who have graduated but have not found their career pathway.
