"The Division is committed to providing enrichment experience and workforce development for our community partners."The Division hopes to see increased participation not only in the PIC courses, but also in the professional development curriculum available outside of the PIC benefit initiative. In addition, the PIC program will establish predictable minimum revenue expectations based on corporate participation in the program.
