Educating the Workforce of Tomorrow

Pungo Christian Academy FFA
Program Area:
Open Grants Program
County of Applicant:

This award provides funding to Pungo Christian Academy (PCA) to purchase tools and equipment to support the expansion of its FFA agricultural programs to include welding, carpentry, and auto mechanics. Approximately 65% of PCA students return home to pursue careers in agriculture. High school students will have the opportunity to learn these skill sets that will prepare them for the workforce and lay the groundwork for continued education. PCA will collaborate with Beaufort County Community College (BCCC) to offer stackable credentials to students who will be able to earn BCCC credit in welding, carpentry, or auto mechanics by the end of their senior year. In addition, students are expected to participate in hands-on learning through internships with local employers. Golden LEAF funds will be used for tools and equipment and for a floodgate to protect PCA’s newly erected shop building which houses these new programs.
