Water Energy Education Alliance (WEEA)
The Water Energy Education Alliance (WEEA or Alliance) is a coalition of education and water and energy industry leaders working together to build and bolster Career Technical Education programs (CTE) for Southern California high school students. The Alliance is a collection of over 55 professional organizations that include water and energy agencies, departments of education, school districts, colleges, technical trade schools, and more.
