York County Alliance for Learning (YCAL) was formed in 1999 as the merger of two organizations with similar missions, the First Capital Compact and School to Work (STW). YCAL's mission is connecting educators and employers to engage students in career education, exploration and development. YCAL's vision is to be the community leader in the facilitation of partnerships and leveraging resources to advance innovative career education and workforce development initiatives. We will connect employers, students, educators, and the community to align the skills and education of the future workforce and employer needs.

In July of 2010, YCAL affiliated with the York County Economic Alliance's(YCEA), Office of Workforce Development. At the end of August 2015 both organizations agreed to discontinue the affiliation. All existing YCAL programming remains in place.
