Governor Wolf Announces More Than $2 Million in Teacher in the Workplace Grants to Help Students and Businesses Thrive

Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today continued his commitment to helping students gain the education and job skills they and their employers need to succeed in a global economy by announcing the award of more than $2 million in Teacher in the Workplace grants to 48 programs across the commonwealth.

“A 21st century economy demands a technically skilled, well-prepared workforce and my administration is dedicated to helping our young people get the skills they need to succeed,” Governor Wolf said. “These funds will provide educators with a more thorough understanding of the skills necessary to thrive in the workplace, make curriculum more employer-relevant, and help ensure that students are career-ready upon graduation.”

The Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry (L&I) awarded the grants through local workforce development boards (LWDBs) across Pennsylvania. The grants allow teachers, counselors and school administrators to interact directly with industry and business leaders to learn about industry trends, needs and opportunities. This first-hand experience and knowledge can then be used to enhance classroom instruction, student learning, and career readiness.
