TCP Advisory Councils

The TCP Business and Educational Advisory Councils (BEAC) bring two important entities to the table as they share a common goal - the best preparation for students to eventually enter the workforce. Members exchange thoughts and ideas with one another and The Challenge Program, Inc., and also keep us up-to-date on curriculum and employment trends. These informative dialogues influence The Challenge Program, Inc.'s message to remain current and relevant to the development of students' success in and out of the classroom.
