Join us at the Hershey Lodge in Hershey, PA, June 5-6, for the Pennsylvania Next Generation Sector Partnership Academy to learn how Next Generation Sector Partnerships can take your region’s partnership with industry to the next level!


What is a Next Gen Sector Partnership? A Next Gen Sector Partnership is:

  • Industry-led: The agenda is based on industry-determined priorities, not public programs.
  • Community-supported: Public partners from workforce development, economic development, education and others work together to convene and support the partnership.
  • Sustainable over time: Since these partnerships are organized around the topic that interests business leaders most–what it takes to ensure that their company thrives–they are sustainable over time.

The Academy is designed for regional teams of 6-10 leaders representing key economic development, workforce development, and education leaders. We strongly encourage you to attend as a team in order to truly get the most out of the Academy.
