Project Pivot For Workers
Project PIVOT is a unique, collaborative program created and launched by Wilkes Barre Connect – the entrepreneurial and economic development arm of the Greater Wyoming Valley Chamber of Commerce – that aims to provide accelerated workforce training and upskilling opportunities for workers aligning with the historic and seismic industry shifts caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Participants of this pilot program will gain FREE access to 17,000+ online LinkedIn Learning courses as a means of developing themselves professionally and upskilling in the careers and fields of their choice, with specialized pathways specifically tailored to industries with high employment demands in Luzerne County.
Throughout the course of this pilot program, participants are introduced to several partnering organizations with specialized services and resources to aid in workforce development, training, upskilling, and education.
This project is made possible by a U.S. Economic Development Administration CARES Act investment.
