About Us

The educational institutions and workforce development organizations in the three counties will develop a guided pathway with stackable skills and credentials provided in course work, workshops, mentoring and assorted support services.


We will empower the residents of our communities, especially those who are economically disadvantaged, African American and/or Latinx, to be change-agents, using their passion, interests, skills and entrepreneurial spirit.




Economically disadvantaged people in North Carolina are more likely to be affected than those who have more money. Fewer people from these backgrounds earn post-secondary credentials than those who have more money. Race and ethnicity also play a big role in how many people get their degrees. While Asian and white residents always do better than the state's average, Black, Hispanic, and Native residents always do worse.
