Industry Councils

Industry Councils bring the voice of employers into 21st century workforce development. Made up of employer representatives from key industries in Delaware, Council members influence and provide strategic direction on educational programs so that students gain the right skills to be successful job applicants within each Council’s industry.

Council members lead by example, developing programs inside their organizations and across the industry that provide students with valuable work-based learning experiences.
