Partnership with PNC
PNC Financial Corp., Inc. awarded the Consortium a $12,000 grant in support of a partnership piloting pre-employment training for high school students. The pilot began this spring with in-school training for selected seniors in five high schools. In the upcoming school year, the pilot will expand to additional schools and to juniors as well as seniors.
“We are grateful for this support and honored to be working with PNC,” said Executive Director Mary Kay Babyak. “They share our belief that investments in education pay dividends, they have a passion for developing the young talent in our region and we deeply appreciate the commitment they’re making to us and our schools. We couldn’t ask for a better partner.”
