Learn More About GP Pathways and the Greater Peoria EDC

GP Pathways is an initiative of the Greater Peoria Economic Development Council that connects middle and high school students and their parents and educators to career exploration information, resources, and activities in our region. The program seeks to identify and share information about the most critically needed job skills in Greater Peoria and support a system that trains those critical skills to support our employers’ future workforce needs.

The Greater Peoria Economic Development Council, established in 1982, is a 501(c) 6 non-profit organization governed by a board of directors including individuals from both the public and the private sector.  The organization is supported by investment from businesses, organizations, counties, and cities throughout the five counties of Logan, Mason, Peoria, Tazewell, and Woodford.

Our Mission

The Greater Peoria Economic Development Council, in collaboration with our local economic and workforce development professionals, drives economic growth in Greater Peoria through targeted business and talent development and attraction.
