JBS and Rio Salado College: A Partnership for a Better Future


JBS is one of the nation's leading food processing companies. JBS USA and Pilgrim recently launched the Better Futures initiative as part of their Hometown Strong initiative. Better Futures is a free-of-charge, two-year college tuition program. This program gives more than 66,000 company team members and their dependent children the opportunity to pursue their higher education dreams. College tuition is paid upfront by the company; eligible team members will not need to take out loans to cover their tuition.

Rio Salado is proud to be selected as the national, online provider for JBS’s Better Futures program.
