The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to support NC Central University’s hospitality training program. In collaboration with local community colleges NCCU will prepare 150 unemployed, displaced tobacco workers and/or new workers to fill critical areas of shortage in the hospitality and tourism industry. Students recruited from four tobacco-dependent counties (Durham, Johnston, Person, and Wilson) will participate in one of three industry certified programs: hotel operations, culinary management and hospitality management and, upon successful completion, will receive job placement assistance.
