Time is running out for Delaware youth ages 16 to 24 to apply for the Delaware Workforce Development Board (DWDB) Scholarship. Applications must be received at the DWDB office no later than 4 p.m., April 14, 2017.

The DWDB Youth Scholarship provides money for school, seminar, or skill training to help younger Delawareans achieve their career objectives.

“We are trying to help Delaware young people who need just a tad more help,” said William J. Potter, executive director of the DWDB. “This scholarship program was the brainchild of our Youth Council led by its chair George Krupanski.”

The scholarship, which has been in existence for about three years, has made awards twice.

“This scholarship only exists due to the commitment and donations of organizations like Delmarva Power and Junior Achievement of Delaware,” Potter said.

The Delaware Workforce Development Board ensures the citizens of Delaware are provided with occupational training and employment service opportunities to help them achieve employment sustaining them and their families. We also seek to communicate with our business industry partners to provide them with qualified workers to meet their employment needs. The DWIB also has a very active Youth Council that has oversight for programs designed specifically to help Delaware’s at-risk and neediest youth prepare for the workforce.
