About Us


Established in 2002, the Business & Education Partnership of Waterloo Region (BEP) is a charitable organization that links education, industry, and community partners with the goal of giving youth valuable career exploration opportunities.  Linking business and education is a proven method for increasing community capacity. Through its partnership successes, the BEP strengthens community prosperity and creates community leaders. We encourage businesses to become involved in the lives of students and take an active role in shaping their future workforce. Youth in Grades 7 through 12 explore careers, gain meaningful professional connections, and learn valuable job skills through programs like the Speakers Bureau, ZOOM Career Days, Challenge Days, Apps4Learning, Pitch Days, and Explore Your Future.
