Riegelwood, NC – February 4, 2021, Men and Women United for Youth & Families in conjunction with Communities Connected for Success (CC4S) are proud to announce the grand opening of their new Workforce Development Center located in the Ransom Activity Center at 2694 General Howe Hwy, Riegelwood, North Carolina.

The event will kick off on February 17, 2021, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and include a ribbon- cutting ceremony to officially present the program to the public. Unemployed and underemployed individuals are encouraged to come out and take advantage of the drive-thru registration to apply for program services. Key partners for this project include The Golden LEAF Foundation, Southeastern Community College, and Cape Fear Community College.

The program is open to residents of Columbus and Bladen counties and will provide Case Management, vital job skills training, and employment placement. After successful completion of the coursework, participants will receive assistance in obtaining living-wage employment along with credentialing and certification in their field of study. Wrap around services will be provided to help
participants overcome barriers such as child care & transportation issues, and assistance to obtain needed equipment for classes. This is a community outreach initiative, and local businesses, churches, and other community agencies are asked to get involved by providing referrals to the program.
