Community Education Centers in Halifax County

Halifax Community College
Program Area:
Community-Based Grantsmaking Initiative
County of Applicant:

The purpose of this grant is to provide funding to Halifax Community College (HCC) to establish and operate three community education centers in the county/service area. The centers will be colocated with existing public schools and operate evenings and some Saturdays. In collaboration with the county’s three school systems and other stakeholders, HCC will offer short- and long-term education and training programs, as well as wraparound services such as soft-skills development to remove obstacles to employment. HCC will offer courses that lead to credentials in food production, electrical/electronics technology, maintenance management, industrial maintenance, log loader operation, log grading and nursing. Courses will be offered at the three community education centers through traditional classroom and/or distance learning. The college intends to enroll an additional 250 students per year through the three centers and will provide transportation to the campus for required hands-on training. Golden LEAF funds will be used for renovation, IT network, personnel, student stipends, supplies/equipment, marketing and technology costs.
