The Pathways Project is a project by the Capital Region Workforce Development Boards supporting Albany, Rensselaer, Schenectady, Columbia, Greene, Saratoga, Warren & Washington Counties and managed by the Center for Economic Growth. This five month long study analyzed the transferable skills between manufacturing and advanced manufacturing in the Capital Region; explored the opinions and needs of manufacturing CEOs and HR representatives; and, analyzed the interests, hobbies, media consumption habits, and career experiences of the region’s non-exempt manufacturing employees.


CEG’s region has a number of workforce development resources, all of which work towards the greater goal of ensuring a strong pipeline of highly skilled, educated workers that can meet the needs of our growing industries. To ensure that workforce training is demand-driven, CEG works closely with businesses, community colleges and training institutions to identify and address specific training needs so that programs are tailored to available jobs.

CEG is a Regional Technology Development Center and also serving as the NYSTAR-designated Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), providing business growth solutions to regional small and mid-sized manufacturers and technology companies.
