PPG Invests $2 Million to Prepare Students for Skilled Trade Careers

PPG announced a commitment to invest $2 million through 2025 to prepare students for skilled trade careers.

The funding will support workforce development initiatives that train and provide opportunities for future workers in manufacturing and coatings.

The commitment aims to introduce students to the career paths within skilled trade. The funding also provides students with educational opportunities to pursue fields such as advanced manufacturing, automotive collision repair, automotive refinishing and painting.

“We understand the importance of providing students with a hands-on, practical education that arms them with the advanced skills needed for career placements in technical and STEM- related fields,” said Malesia Dunn, Executive Director, PPG Foundation and Corporate Global Social Responsibility. “The PPG Foundation is a long-time supporter of workforce development programs. As we recognize the important contributions of skilled workers during U.S. Manufacturing Month in October, we’re dedicating our commitment to connect students with access to the tools and training needed for a vast range of career possibilities.”
