Roxboro Housing Authority and Piedmont Community College (PCC) are set to hold an awareness session regarding training, employment, and small business opportunities in Person County. The orientation session starts at 3:30 p.m., Thursday, September 19, at the Lee Gardens Community Center, 808 Lyle Street in Roxboro. Admission is free and is open to the public.
“The goal of this meeting is to spark an interest in our residents and others about working at local companies to get paid a good wage with benefits or to start a business in Person County,” said RHA Executive Director Felts Lewis. “This is one of several self-sufficiency activities that Roxboro Housing Authority is offering through its partnership with PCC.”
Information presented will address training requirements to prepare people for positions offered primarily by local manufacturing companies located in Person County.
The Workforce Certification Academy, through PCC’s Human Resources Development Office, assists people who are unemployed or underemployed to gain required skills.
PCC representatives also plan to answer questions about other opportunities offered by the college involving academic (associates degrees) and other continuing education options.
