Finish For Your Future! Finish For Your Career! Finish For Your Education! Finish For Yourself!
Richmond Community College has a collaborative plan to reduce the number of people in Richmond and Scotland County who do not have an adult high school education. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, 65 percent of jobs in 2020 will require an education and training beyond high school credentials. Studies also show that the fastest growing occupations require more than a high school diploma.
The goal of the Finish for Your Future campaign is to reach the 20 percent of the population in Richmond and Scotland County over the age of 25 who do not have a high school education. When students come into the Adult High School Diploma or High School Equivalency program, they take an assessment using a tool called Career Coach, and they are put in a career cluster that speaks to their interests and skills. We correlate the instruction they receive in the program to specific occupations, while also getting them into skills training classes like CPR or OSHA 10 so they have more skills to support them. We construct individual career plans for these folks and connect them with all the resources the College has to offer.
When students graduate from either of these Adult Education programs, they will be offered up to $1,000 in scholarship money from the RichmondCC Foundation to continue their education in a college or workforce training program at RichmondCC.
