County of Applicant:

The purpose of this grant is to provide funding to the Dunn Police Athletic and Activities League (Dunn PAL) for the “Career Readiness and Workforce Development” project. Dunn PAL plans to partner with Central Carolina Community College, Harnett County Schools and area workforce development centers to help youth who may not want to attend college, learn a trade and enter the local labor force. Training will be in electrical, auto mechanic, construction, HVAC, media arts (videography, photography), car body repair, computer repair and information technology trades. In addition, students will experience a comprehensive workforce development program that includes training in both soft and general employability skills. Upon completion of the program, students would earn an industry-recognized credential. Golden LEAF funds will be used for equipment and supplies to enhance the career readiness lab, and for student transportation and industry tours/field trips.
