Northern Tier Industry & Education Consortium (NTIEC) recently received a $20,000 grant from Procter & Gamble (P&G) to support career education initiatives for area youth in Wyoming, Susquehanna, Sullivan, Bradford and Tioga counties which surround the P&G Mehoopany Plant.

The grant will help NTIEC create a stronger workforce by bringing together students, educators and area businesses. Shealynn Shave, NTIEC’s Executive Director stated, “this funding will allow us to provide in-depth, mentored, work-based learning experiences for students who have an interest in a specific field through youth apprenticeships, hospital internships, healthcare career experience camps, job shadowing and workplace tours.”

NTIEC’s reputation and long-term relationships with employers enables them to place students and employers face-to-face for a “real-world view” of career opportunities and educational requirements necessary to be successful. NTIEC would like to thank P&G for this gracious funding and also for their continued partnership on building a stronger local workforce.  

For more information about NTIEC’s programs available for our youth, contact them at 570-278-5038.

The website - a meager investment with no immediate return - is meant to be community-based and to reflect the varied tastes of its readers. Submissions from legitimate organizations and event coordinators are welcome and will be published as space and time allow. This website is operated by Endless Mountains Media Services. I am seeking submissions of news stories, promotional press releases, and photos for posting with full recognition for the submitter. I am also hoping to build a base of correspondents who would enjoy being my "ears and eyes" in parts of the four county region where news is happening. I am also a self-employed media consultant and freelance writer/editor, providing professional services for businesses, municipalities, and organizations for which retaining a full time staff writer is not a viable option.
