Meridian Community College is part of the Crossroads Consortium along with four additional Mississippi community colleges. As part of this consortium, MCC manages the Families First I2S (Incentives to Success) program.
The I2S program provides opportunities to improve employ ability skills and incentives for qualifying adult education students to obtain the education and credentials that today’s workers need to qualify for middle-skill jobs. The goal of the I2S program is to encourage and motivate the Adult Education (AE) student to succeed in completing a career pathway by introducing a positive reinforcement approach that gives students immediate, tangible rewards as they earn skill certificates/degrees.
Funding for this program is provided through the Crossroads Consortium and the Families First for Mississippi organization.
