A Deeper Community Connection
Carol Spalding, Community College Daily
Rowan-Cabarrus Community College in North Carolina has a new community partner in helping unemployed and underemployed people. The college is working with Cornerstone Church to connect with people within the congregation through a network of volunteer ambassadors.
The ambassador program trains church staff and parishioners to provide information about Rowan-Cabarrus to church and community members. The college's R3 (ReFocus, ReTrain, ReEmploy) team follows up to assist with specific program details and services, such as career coaching, adult basic education, job search assistance, and digital literacy.
