Danville Area Community College and Vermilion County Works secured a WIOA grant to create short-term training opportunities in manufacturing. Plus, Vermilion Advantage has taken steps to strengthening the career advisor process.
This collaborative effort supports the students of Vandalia C.U.S.D. #203 and the Okaw Vocational Center in the greater Fayette County area, with the goal to expand to other districts in the county. ONE stands for Own it, Name it, Embrace it. Our goal is to provide 16 pathways from 8th grade to certifications, associate’s degrees, and bachelor’s degrees based on regional needs, interest from partners, and a commitment from the business and industry sector. Current efforts include:
- FAFSA Completion Campaign
- Vocational Bootcamp
