Maine Employers' Initiative
The Maine Employers’ Initiative provides Maine's public and private employers with technical assistance, training and statewide recognition for taking steps to promote educational and career advancement opportunities for their employees.
In September, MDF and our partners launched the Next Step Maine campaign to encourage working adults and other non-traditional students to reach for their educational and career goals. Click on the Next Step Maine logo above to visit the new site which compiles resources and information for over 340 programs from 12 Maine institutions that may work best for adult students; including flexible schedules and online learning, etc.
Maine Employers' Initiative thanks our major funders for their support:
