Preparing for tomorrow’s careers today

Across the nation, thousands of workers are needed in healthcare, skilled trades, science, technology, engineering and math. Our region is no exception. As our economy rebounds and growth opportunities are realized, these needs will only increase.

We are determined to give students the chance to improve their lives, to help businesses train the skilled workers they need to be competitive, and to give our region a highly skilled workforce that will encourage existing businesses to expand and new businesses to set up shop in our region.

In early 2014, we consulted thought leaders from throughout the region to identify ways we can help students and businesses succeed. Together, we identified the following priorities.
