Education Matters. Investing in Human Capital. Preparing for Future Jobs.

We believe in the value of education as a means to personal fulfillment and community vitality. Our goal is to empower today’s workforce by creating pathways to and through postsecondary education for underrepresented students. We are committed to helping them attain the marketable skills and training needed to gain meaningful employment, which we hope will result in a sustainable shift in North Carolina.
