Peoria Hosts Delegation from Puerto Rico

Peoria partners recently hosted a 15-person delegation of Puerto Rican mayors, employers, and educators brought by the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) to learn more about Peoria’s successful Pathways to Prosperity program, a recipient of an innovation grant from AFT.  As Puerto Rico looks to help high school students hurt by Hurricane Maria secure internships to boost the island’s workforce and revitalize its economy, they are looking to Peoria as a model. You can learn more about this visit from the AFT press release and local media.
