FLORNECE, S.C. (July 5, 2018) - Florence-Darlington Technical College’s (FDTC) Corporate and Workforce Development division recently provided training for participants in the non-profit organization, Man 2 Man Fatherhood Initiative.
An initial event for the group’s Dads 2 Grads program was held on May 29, 2018, and it included a day for completion of the Kuder career assessment (sponsored by The South Carolina Center for Fathers and Families), a comprehensive overview of training programs available at FDTC, and exposure for the participants to five local employers who are hiring.
Every individual who completes the program has the opportunity to immediately enter various training programs at FDTC with Man 2 Man sponsorship, learning skills in manufacturing and other areas that are vital to the local workforce.
"Our Corporate and Workforce Development division, we think, is truly a pipeline directly into the workforce for those who may not have a pathway out of high school or for those who may not be ready for academic programs at this time," said Charlotte Forrest, Industry Program Manager for FDTC’s Corporate & Workforce Development division. "We try to do everything that we can to support the community, because that's where our pipeline is coming from directly, and our workforce in return needs great workers. Any training that we can provide, we want to do that."
