Innovative Regional Approaches to Workforce/ Economic Development

Keystone Community Education Council (Keystone CEC, KCEC)

“Education and Training – Where, When, and How YOU Need It!” sums up what the Keystone Community Education Council (Keystone CEC, KCEC) is all about. The Keystone CEC acts as a non-biased clearinghouse and education referral resource for all education providers, and as a coordinator of their efforts. The KCEC acts as a “niche-filler” identifying, brokering, and developing educational training options that are currently not available in their service area. KCEC currently covers Clarion, Crawford, Mercer, and Venango Counties in NW Pennsylvania, and the surrounding area.
