The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to support Project New Start which has demonstrated success in retraining dislocated workers from tobacco and other industries for employment. These individuals will increase their skills and obtain new employment with wages above their pre-layoff wage levels. The program will provide remedial and life skills training, job readiness and placement services and case management. Training includes the option for enrollment in the Industrial Maintenance Mechanic or CNA programs.
