This October, Gadsden State Community College will offer job training to residents of Alabama’s rural areas. The program serves to aid those who have never had an opportunity to learn the skills necessary to find a job.
Last week, a mobile classroom parked in front of Leesburg’s Town Hall. This is where the workers from Gadsden State will teach their classes to anyone who wishes to attend them.
Program’s organizers have stated that the lessons will focus on soft skills, such as resume creation, critical thinking, problem-solving, and time management.
The program became more than an idea thanks to the collaboration of East AlabamaWorks, Alabama Industrial Development Training, Cherokee County (Chamber of Commerce and Industrial Development Authority), Leesburg, and Gadsden State.
The college workers will teach three classes, each lasting for four weeks. The learners should expect meetings twice a week. This means that the mobile classroom will stay in Leesburg for three months. The program starts on October 7, when participants can begin taking their job skills lessons.
