City gives more funding to PCC for workforce development

Loading…

Monday, May 14, 2018

The Greenville City Council recently approved an increase in the city's funding for workforce development initiatives at Pitt Community College, a move that leaders hope will pave the way for more participation in the programs.

During its April 12 meeting, the Council voted unanimously to increase the city's funding from $6,500 to $15,000 annually. The investment will provide financial assistance for participants in PCC workforce development programs in the School of Continuing Education.

"We are extremely proud as a city to be able to make an investment into our people," Councilmember Kandie Smith said. "We know that many times we hear about trying to bring businesses and companies here, but we also want to make sure that we let everyone know that economic development also includes taking care of our people and making sure that we educate and train them to be in the workforce."

Smith initiated the discussions regarding additional workforce development support while serving as mayor in October 2017. Following meetings with representatives from PCC, it was determined that the most common obstacle for the training programs was the financial hardship that some prospective students faced.

The additional funding for workforce development is consistent with the "Greenville Means Business" philosophy, an approach by the City Council that focuses on creating jobs and growing the local economy.

"Everyone knows that businesses are always adapting and changing, so we have to make sure that we have a workforce that is fully trained so when we do get new jobs in our area, our people are ready for them," Greenville Mayor P.J. Connelly said. "It is important that we are helping give people the skills they need to be successful."
