Governor’s Weekly Message: Building a Strong Workforce to Meet the Demands of Growing Industries

Wilmington – In his weekly message , Governor Markell highlights additional efforts to provide Delawareans with access to ongoing education and jobs training.    

“Earlier this week, we announced Delaware’s participation in the Generation USA youth employment project, and this fall we’ll launch the Delaware Tech Hire initiative,” said Governor Markell. “These initiatives build on efforts like our Pathways to Prosperity initiative, which allows high school students to earn workplace experience and college credit in high-demand fields before they graduate, giving them a head start on getting a job and earning a degree. By rethinking the state’s approach to workforce training and building partnerships between employers and our schools, we’ll provide more opportunities for our workers to gain the skills that they need, and that will keep Delaware moving forward.”

Every week, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form. The message is available on:
