Educating & Training

the Corrugated & Paperboard Packaging Workforce

How We Help

Studies have shown that manufacturing companies that can demonstrate investment in industry-related employee education are more likely to fill open positions and retain team members than those that cannot. 

Foundation funds will be used, in part, for in-person, goal-based training programs for manufacturing floor teams, so, the Foundation for Packaging Education is uniquely positioned to reduce the training expense for AICC member companies & the industry.

The Foundation will support educational and scientific research, and in-kind support to educational institutions for curriculum development growing the knowledge base available to everyone.
