What is VBEC?
VBEC (Victoria Business and Education Coalition) is the educational initiative of the University of Houston Victoria, The Victoria College, Victoria Independent School District, Victoria Chamber of Commerce, and many area businesses and individuals. The goal of the program is to assist with increasing the educational attainment level of the region. The success has been phenomenal.
VBEC is completely grant and donation funded and has a 501(c)(3) status with the Internal Revenue Service. The program currently consists of the five facets; Mentoring/Tutoring Program, Business Cents, Dream Big STEM Expo, YOUth LEADership Conference, and Career Talk. Our mission is to inspire children to overcome barriers by reaching their educational goals through the support of linking the citizens and businesses in the community.
