Erie Gives 2018
Posted on Thursday, July 19, 2018 at 9:31 AM


On Aug. 14 from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm, we’re participating in Erie Gives! Go to on Aug. 14 and search for Erie Together. All donations will support Erie Together's work leading the Erie County Career Pathways Alliance (ECCPA). Any donation of $25 or more will have a portion of that gift matched by The Erie Community Foundation. 

The ECCPA is a business/education partnership to prepare students for post-secondary education and training, careers and responsible citizenship. Through the ECCPA, businesses are advising multiple school districts, post-secondary providers and workforce developers on current and future local in-demand jobs, the education, training and skills necessary to secure those jobs, and connecting students in the workplace. Educators and employers are also creating meaningful experiences to expose students to local companies and careers. Erie Together is regularly convening this group and facilitating its efforts.

Because of this initiative, STUDENTS benefit from more guidance from employers and higher quality exposure to local jobs and companies so they can make better career choices; SCHOOLS are more connected to local companies, which is helping to guide k-12 education; and BUSINESSES are better positioned to shape their future workforce.
