The ‘Forward Delaware’ initiative was designed to rebuild Delaware’s workforce by providing rapid training to those looking to build skills and enhance their employment opportunities.  

‘Forward Delaware 2.0’ is being administered by the State of Delaware and key industry leaders, including the Delaware Restaurant Association. Free training tuition is being provided for 11 industry courses by federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding, and does include some requirements for eligibility (those participating must either live OR work within Delaware).

We’ll guide you through the process and welcome any questions/concerns along the way!
