Lt. Gov. Austin Davis Visits Greater Altoona Career & Technology Center to Highlight Shapiro-Davis Budget's Investments in Career and Technical Education

Lt. Gov. Austin Davis wants even more Pennsylvania students to have the opportunity to chart their own course with the option to pursue career and technical training at facilities like the Greater Altoona Career & Technology Center, which Davis visited.

"If we're going to address the workforce shortages facing Pennsylvania communities, we need to create pipelines of talent in these key industries, and we need to empower young people to pursue their dreams, not matter what they may be," said Davis. "That's why the Shapiro-Davis budget invests more into apprenticeship programs, expands vo-tech and brings career and technical training back into the classroom, to give students that freedom and help prepare them for the future."

The Shapiro-Davis budget proposes an increase of $23.8 million to build partnerships between career and technical education and industries, trades and entities that need highly skilled workers.

Speakers Include:
Executive Director Eric Palmer
LG Austin Davis
Commissioner Burke
Bob Kutz
Andrea Lascoli
Chelsea Gibbons
