Workforce Preparedness

Created in 1979 by a group of foresighted business leaders in Northwest PA, our Foundation addresses the compelling and urgent issue of workforce preparedness by offering interactive, impactful programs that help students develop the job-ready skills today's employers demand. It's amazing that over four decades later, workforce preparedness remains the most critical need for Pennsylvanian business. That's why our mission and vision has never been more important.
