PCD became a School to Work Partnership in 1995, through the federal legislation, School to Work Opportunities Act of 1994.

PCD was one of 55 School to Work Partnerships in Pennsylvania developed during the five years of federal seed money designated to building business education partnerships across the country.

After seed money was exhausted, Pennsylvania did not continue School to Work legislation. Many partnerships disappeared and within two years, there were approx 22 partnerships remaining. Currently, PCD is one of a scant handful remaining in the state..

PCD officially became a 501(c)3 charitable organization in 2010.

The Partnership actually began as a Resource Center to connect teachers to materials and business contacts and to help students in the process.

Currently, PCD provides services in three tiers: direct services to schools & organizations in Dauphin, Cumberland, and Perry Counties, extended assistance in South Central PA (9+ counties), and state-level assistance through professional development and consulting services.

Our work: The Partnership for Career Development works to build a system of K-12 career education, increase awareness of post secondary training and education opportunities, and strengthen workforce development in the Pennsylvania Capital Region.
