Applications Accepted For Workforce Solutions Internship Program

 

 

Workforce Solutions for North Central PA, Inc. was awarded funding from the PA Department of Labor and Industry to support the 2018 State/Local Internship Program (PA SLIP) in our six county region of Cameron, Clearfield, Elk, Jefferson, McKean, and Potter counties. This region has experienced a significant population loss over the past 18 years of 6% with projections of a loss of another 30,000 in the next 10 years due to individuals aging out of the workforce.

With a regional unemployment rate of 5.73% (December 2017) and this looming population crisis creating a threat of a labor force shortage, the SLIP internship is a great strategy to assist in retaining our young people and making them aware of the career opportunities in their own backyard.
