County of Applicant:
Forsyth
Description:

The purpose of this Golden LEAF Opportunities for Work grant is to support the efforts of Goodwill Industries of Northwest North Carolina, Inc. to serve individuals with scholarship support, funding for books and college fees not covered by WIOA and other available funding, unmet needs for items like work-related physicals, driver’s license fees, etc., and childcare while the participants are in training. Careers in high demand for this region are Professional Truck Driver Training/CDL, Customer Service/Call Center, Forklift Operator, Nursing Assistant, Welding, Pharmacy Assistant, HVAC, and Facility Maintenance Technician. Goodwill became the service provider for NCWorks in July 2018 for a seven-county region of North Carolina and the project will serve participants from four of them—Davie, Stokes, Surry, and Yadkin counties. Training will be implemented in coordination with area community colleges. Grant funds would be used for childcare, salaries, support services, outreach events, and supplies. Goodwill plans to sustain the program by working with funding partners, then including the program as one of Goodwill’s core services.
