Description:

This Golden LEAF grant will expand the training capacity of the Catawba Valley Furniture Academy at Catawba Valley Community College (CVCC), which houses a simulated furniture factory to train workers in skills needed by the industry. With the additional capacity, CVCC expects to nearly triple enrollment at the Furniture Academy. The enhanced capacity will prepare the college to meet the demand for skilled employees of the Company and other furniture manufacturers in the area which it is currently unable to do. The College has identified demand for over 600 trained workers in the furniture industry over the next two years.
