NATURE OF THE INNOVATION: A workforce intermediary between businesses, training programs, and jobseekers in the Ohio and Pennsylvania Interstate Region, spanning three local workforce investment areas and five counties.

P2C convenes regional employers to cultivate buy-in for industry-recognized credentials and better understand hiring needs; builds career pathways with education providers aligned with industry demand; facilitates work-based learning opportunities for jobseekers; supports “pipeline development,” programs aimed at shifting youth perceptions of manufacturing.  It also provides an outreach and marketing hub for all Oh-Penn constituents.
