Golden LEAF Opportunities for Work Initiative
County of Applicant:
Cumberland
Description:

The purpose of this Golden LEAF Opportunities for Work grant is to provide funding to Fayetteville Technical Community College (FTCC) to provide assessment, training, and job placement support to individuals previously incarcerated for non-violent crimes. The Cumberland County District Attorney and local law enforcement agencies will help in the identification of potential program candidates. Identified candidates will complete a case management screening and career assessment. Participants will then receive ongoing employment coaching from a success coach and will be enrolled in a 15-week course focusing on electrical, HVAC, plumbing, and carpentry trades. Course completers will receive Forklift Certification, OSHA 10 Basic Construction Card, and NCCER Core Credential. A success coach, in collaboration with business entities, will assist program completers with job placement. To fully support participant success, the project will collaborate with community and industry partners to provide wraparound services and individual mentoring for program participants. Golden LEAF funds will be used to support staffing, outreach, pre-screening, student support and wraparound services, student internships, and mentor stipends.
