Rise 2 Work

The College and Career Readiness Department at Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) has launched Rise 2 Work, a Mecklenburg County Department of Social Services and North Carolina Division of Health and Human Services program that seeks to connect low-income residents with the education and training opportunities they need to secure a better-paying job or family-sustaining career.

Rise 2 Work is a grant-funded program that is available to individuals enrolled in Mecklenburg County Food & Nutrition Services Employment and Training Program who want to increase their skills, earn new credentials, boost their career possibilities and contribute to their family financial well-being. To be eligible, residents must qualify to receive SNAP/EBT/Food Stamps assistance and be able to work.
