Governor Wolf Announces $2 Million in Business Education Partnership Grants for In-Demand Jobs

Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today continued his commitment to providing students with educational opportunities and experiences in in-demand technical fields by announcing the award of $2 million in Business Education Partnership grants to 18 projects across the commonwealth.

“These funds will strengthen the ties between the classroom and the workplace, allowing students to explore potential careers and learn about the job skills needed to succeed in today’s workforce,” said Governor Wolf. “A global 21st century economy demands a technically skilled, well-prepared workforce and my administration is committed to helping our young people start out on the right foot to put them on a path to success.”

The Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry (L&I) awarded the grants through Local Workforce Development Boards (LWDBs) across Pennsylvania. The Business Education Partnerships connect schools and employers, so students can get internships, workplace shadowing, and career mentoring experiences to learn about the technical skills that employers require.
