Expanding Workforce Development Programs

Nursing Student

Today, thousands of residents in our community are struggling to make ends meet. In the wake of COVID-19, many of our friends and neighbors have lost jobs that will likely not return. These individuals will need to learn new skills, earn credentials, and prepare for the jobs and careers of the future. In our community there is one path to help them do that…PVCC. 

To help our community we must offer cutting edge programs matched to the new economic reality and job opportunities in the region. Pathways will allow the college to elevate workforce development and training with a focus on key industries. Your investment will enable PVCC to anticipate regional workforce needs and create opportunity by training people for work in new and high-demand careers.

Your campaign gift will allow PVCC to:

Expand high-demand programs such as Nursing, Cybersecurity, Advanced Manufacturing, and Information Technology. 

Expand successful initiatives such as Network2Work @PVCC, which recruits individuals receiving public assistance and provides training and upward mobility opportunities that help them achieve long-term self-sufficiency.

Establish a rapid response fund for programs of the future, positioning the college to respond quickly to emerging needs of local employers and develop new programs and training as demand arises.
