|Published Thursday, November 14, 2013|
The Urban League of Central Carolinas will host its “Not At Risk… At Opportunity” Annual Meeting Nov. 21, 6:30 p.m. at Extravaganza Depot.
The evening, which will include entertainment, heavy hors d’oeuvres and networking, will highlight the agency’s impact on the community through its workforce development and education programs.
This year, in addition to providing career training and certification programs through its 21st Century Workforce Development Center, ULCC partnered with Jacob’s Ladder Job Center to expand its service to the unemployed and underemployed.
“The merger between Urban League and Jacob’s Ladder is affording participants a great opportunity to get training in job readiness, national certifications, entrepreneurship and financial literacy – all of which are crucial to addressing unemployment and barriers to earned income in our community,” said ULCC President and CEO Patrick Graham.
In addition to celebrating its accomplishments, ULCC will also present awards during its annual meeting to community organizations and individuals who have made a difference in the agency’s impact in the community.
Foundation for the Carolinas will receive the “Community Champion” award, and seven local churches will be honored as “Faith Based Champions.”
ULCC’s annual meeting is free and open to the public. Extravaganza Depot is located at 1610 North Tryon Street. The program begins promptly at 7:15 p.m. Call (704) 373-2256 ext. 205 for more information.
