House of Representatives
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: February 4, 2019 11:10 AM
From: Representative Ryan E. Mackenzie
To: All House members
Subject: CareerBound Workforce Development Program
In the near future I will be reintroducing legislation to create CareerBound, a program that will strengthen the connection between Pennsylvania’s students and the next generation of high-priority careers. CareerBound passed the House during previous sessions with bipartisan support.

Designed as a workforce development program, CareerBound will focus on allowing local workforce development boards to collaborate with schools, businesses, and other trade organizations to create effective, innovative school-to-work programs. These joint ventures will provide students with early exposure to a wide array of career opportunities including career expos, job shadowing, internships, and other career-education integration initiatives. The Department of Labor & Industry would be charged with overseeing programs established under CareerBound.

The Department can utilize funds from the Reemployment Fund, existing funds appropriated to the Department, or funds directly appropriated for the program to successfully implement this program. The tax credit system that was similar to the Educational Improvement Tax Credit and was included in previous versions of CareerBound is not included in this version.

Please join me in cosponsoring CareerBound to help prepare the next generation of our workforce for high-priority careers.

Previous cosponsors: Bizzarro, R. Brown, T. Davis, Dowling, Driscoll, Fee, Gabler, Goodman, Grove, Hahn, Heffley, Hill-Evans, Irvin, James, Kauffman, Kim, Knowles, Longietti, Madden, B. Miller, Murt, Ortitay, Rozzi, Ryan, Simmons, Solomon, Tobash, Zimmerman.
