Governor Tom Wolf visited New Century Careers on March 9 to discuss his PAsmart workforce development initiative, tour NCC’s Training Innovation Center and spend quality time with students.  Mayor Bill Peduto,  Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald, and PA Dept. of Community & Economic Development Secretary Dennis Davin were also in attendance.

During a press conference at NCC, Governor Wolf outlined his 2018-2019 budget proposal- which includes $50 million for PAsmart to:

– Increase STEM and computer science education, apprenticeships and industry partnerships;

– Develop Career and Technical Education and STEM career pathways; and

– Encourage employers to partner with colleges and universities.

Governor Wolf said, “It’s wonderful to see the incredible work being done here at New Century Careers, connecting people with the skills they need to get meaningful careers in the manufacturing industry- one of Pennsylvania’s most critical industries.”

During the event, New Century Careers also hosted an open house and group tours prior to the governor’s announcement. Attendees included representatives from multiple manufacturing partners, members of the NCC board of directors and foundation leaders who are all committed to the continued success of NCC’s vital work.
