ARE BARRIERS PREVENTING YOU FROM WORKING?
The purpose of this Golden LEAF Opportunities for Work grant is to provide funding to Piedmont Community College to support the Empowerment and Education for Employment (Triple E) project.
PCC will work collaboratively with local workforce development agencies, human services agencies, and employers to increase the number of working age adults obtaining at least one industry-led, third-party credential and participating in work-based learning opportunities through paid internships or on-the-job training.
- CDL (Class A)
- Bioworks Process Technician
- HVAC Electrical Training
A case manager will work closely with students and refer them to collaborating agencies for assistance addressing their barriers to employment. Many local employers have guaranteed an interview to students who successfully complete CPT and Siemens Level I credentialing due to the high demand for individuals with those skills. Golden LEAF funds will be used for staffing (shared with PCC), equipment, supportive services, training, and work-based learning.
See for yourself!
“It’s been the chance of a lifetime. Thank you for pushing me to reach levels like this in the corporate world.”
