Mark your calendars for the 21st Annual Moraine State Park Regatta - August 3rd & 4th, 2019

Workforce Development Tent

Workforce Development Tent

Ask any employer what their top struggles are, and you’ll likely receive the same answer, “finding good help”. Employers are struggling to find employees who are a good fit for their company. Unemployment rates are extremely low, which makes the hiring process more competitive. Western Pennsylvania has dozens of higher education and training options, which are trying to maintain or increase enrollment. Workforce development is one of the biggest issues currently facing our region. As the Moraine State Park Regatta Leadership Board plans the 2019 Regatta, we recognize that in order to provide an impactful community event of this scale, that we need to recognize the needs of the region. We are looking forward to bringing workplaces and educational institutions together to educate the community about opportunities for workforce development right here in Southwestern Pennsylvania.
 

VISION:

  • Companies and organizations looking to hire or expand their employee base will have the opportunity to exhibit
  • Educational institutions including trade schools who are looking for students or apprentices can exhibit
  • Organizations looking for a volunteer workforce can exhibit
  • Tables will line the perimeter of the tent
  • Chairs and tables for people to sit down and have further conversations will be in the center of the tent
  • For people who work full-time, this weekend event provides a great opportunity to learn about other training or employment opportunities


Contact us for opportunities to participate as an exhibitor, as we still have openings in this tent.
