PCC’s Triple E (Empowerment and Education for Employment) Grant

Piedmont Community College
Program Area:
Golden LEAF Opportunities for Work Initiative
County of Applicant:

The purpose of this Golden LEAF Opportunities for Work grant is to provide funding to Piedmont Community College (PCC) to support the Empowerment and Education for Employment (Triple E) project. PCC will work collaboratively with local workforce development agencies, human services agencies, and employers to increase the number of working age adults obtaining at least one industry-led, third-party credential (Certified Production Technician (CPT), Siemens Level I, and HVAC) and participating in work-based learning opportunities through paid internships or on-the-job training. A case manager will work closely with students and refer them to collaborating agencies for assistance addressing their barriers to employment. Many local employers have guaranteed an interview to students who successfully complete CPT and Siemens Level I credentialing due to the high demand for individuals with those skills. Golden LEAF funds will be used for staffing (shared with PCC), equipment, supportive services, training, and work-based learning.
