"The 'Skill Up' initiative is collaboration between educators, local manufacturers and government to address the need to develop an educated workforce to meet the needs of today's employers," Corbett said. "We continue to work diligently to bridge the gap between job-seekers and employers to make sure there is a job for every Pennsylvanian who wants one."
Corbett discussed the initiative during a visit to LCTI, which prepares students with the academic and technical knowledge needed to succeed in higher education and careers. LCTI has been open since 1971, and serves students in grades 9-12 from the nine Lehigh County school districts.
