JPMorgan Chase Supports the Regions Skilled Workforce Through a $5.3 Million Re-Commitment

JPMorgan Chase continues support for the Region's skilled workforce through a $5.3 Million re-commitment for the Greater Washington Partnership and Education Strategy Group to expand their TalentReady career pathways programs over the next three years. The program focuses on ensuring students get work-based learning experience such as capstone projects and internships. To date, TalentReady has supported more than 25,000 high school students—from Fairfax County, Va.; Montgomery County, Md.; Prince George’s County, Md.; Washington, D.C. and Baltimore City, Md —in career pathways that include opportunities to earn college credit and industry-recognized credentials. In the next phase, additional effort will be made to help ensure students get work-based learning experience, using information and insights from local employers to build career pathways that are more closely aligned with regional labor market demands and real-world work experiences.

“Thanks to the private sector leadership of JPMorgan Chase and their investment in Talent Ready, we are expanding workforce opportunities for students in Virginia,” said Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin. “My administration is committed to fostering pathways to the most in demand careers, providing technical training, and investing in results-oriented programs that boost our workforce readiness. By fostering partnerships between our top ranked education institutions and Virginia’s most critical employers, we are preparing our young people to graduate workforce and college ready.”
