Serving education, businesses, and the community.

Lancaster AACEs

Through Lancaster AACEs (Anytime Anywhere Career Explorations), IU13 is working to create digital resources aimed at connecting Lancaster County learners to local business and industry with support from Business-Education Partnership funding obtained by the Lancaster Workforce Development Board. These digital resources will include captivating career interviews and virtual reality (VR) business tours intended to be complementary to Career Ready Lancaster’s (CRL!) efforts to forge career pathways and partnerships between education, business, and community groups. Ultimately, the program strives to inform students about local career opportunities and the skills necessary for success in order to develop a quality workforce for a strong local economy.

IU13 has partnered with businesses representative of the most in-demand industry sectors in Lancaster County – healthcare, manufacturing, and information technology.
