County of Applicant:

Description:

The purpose of this grant is to assist Halifax Community College with costs associated with the new early college located on its campus. The Roanoke Valley Early College (RVEC) opened in the fall of 2009 in partnership with Weldon City Schools and serves students in grades 7-13. Goals of the collaboration include reducing high school dropout rates and creating a highly-trained workforce. The RVEC program is tied directly to local and state economic development priorities and offers all students work-based learning experiences such as internships and job shadowing. Golden LEAF will be used to supplement the start-up costs of the new school and will be used for facility upgrades, a library, and to purchase lab equipment and technology for classrooms.
