Be Pro Be Proud places students in the driver’s seat of their own futures by equipping them with tools that inform them of what they can do, where they can do it, and how they position themselves to take advantage of existing opportunities across a variety of technical career paths.

Since its inception and later launch in 2016, BPBP, through its online tools and Mobile Workshop, has made more than 550 visits to middle schools, junior high schools, high schools, two-year colleges, fairs and festivals, community events, job fairs, businesses, and churches in over 285 Arkansas cities. Over 105,000 students have directly engaged with these resources and 22,500 have expressed an interest in learning more about the promoted training and jobs.
