Ambassador Career Engagement Award Recipients 2018

BHECN Ambassador Career Engagement Awards - 2018 Recipients

Since 2012, the BHECN Ambassador Program has hosted conferences and presentations to introduce high school and college students to careers in behavioral health professions. Last year, June 2017, BHECN launched the Ambassador Career Engagement Awards, awarding funds for community groups to introduce local youth to behavioral health professions through experiences closer to home.

BHECN has selected five programs for funding in 2018-2019. The recipients are offering programming to educate Nebraska students primarily in rural or underserved communities. BHECN will track college enrollment and provide additional mentorship and support to students who enter programs to become licensed mental health professionals in Nebraska.
