Gov. Wolf: Pennsylvania Preparing Youth for Careers of Their Choice, Including in the Military

Governor Tom Wolf joined Pennsylvania’s Adjutant General Maj. General Anthony Carrelli, and retired generals and admirals from Mission: Readiness to release the non-profit organization’s workforce readiness report that outlines how competition for qualified individuals among all employment sectors affects military recruiting efforts and warrants greater investment in our next generation.

"I am committed to making investments in education at all ages to help ensure we provide Pennsylvanians with the skills needed for every open job and that includes positions with the Pennsylvania National Guard and all branches of the military," Gov. Wolf said. "These investments start in the earliest years of life, when children are learning soft skills such as teamwork, time management and good communication."
