What We Do: Support Students and Educators
Support of secondary programs is crucial to the success of the Associations’ workforce development efforts. To keep these programs strong, PGAMA employs various strategies including participation in program advisory committees, providing professional development for educators so that they can deliver the latest industry developments to their students, and the coordination of the SkillsUSA Graphic Communications competition.
PGAMA encourages all secondary programs to achieve and maintain PrintED accreditation ensuring that qualified instructors have the resources to offer a sustainable program. Additionally, the PGAMA Education Trust provides scholarship opportunities for students.
