Yuma ABEC is Booming in Yuma County!

Yuma ABEC is so excited for the 2022-2023 school year. We are pleased to welcome to two new middle schools to our Yuma ABEC family. Southwest Junior High and San Luis Middle School from Gadsden School District will be a welcome addition.

We finished the first year of DRIVE, our automotive program. We had two wonderful race days at Crane Middle School and Centennial Middle School. We are looking forward to another great year of racing!

Yuma ABEC has relocated to Southwest Technical Education District of Yuma. This move helps facilitate our commitment to Yuma students as they engage in career and technical programs at all levels of education in Yuma County.


Through the Yuma-ABEC Middle School Career Exploration Project, all students will

  • Explore understanding personal interest and passions and how they translate into future career goals and aspirations
  • Research and evaluate career options
  • Set goals and make plans for achieving career options through the development of Education Career Action Plans that will follow them into high school

Students will be provided with opportunities to experience hands-on activities, presentations, and mentoring from experts in key occupations that lead to discovery and nurturing of career aspirations and connection of education to the real world of work.
