Our community is only as strong as its workforce. In the hopes of ensuring all citizens of Craven County have an opportunity to pursue a career in the trades, Craven Community College (Craven CC) is proud to provide the Volt Toolbelt Trust program.
The Volt Toolbelt Trust covers 100% of the registration costs for a credentialed workforce development program (56 hours or more and leads to a certification or licensure) at Craven CC.*
The Volt Toolbelt Trust provides opportunity in our community through:
- Debt-free education
- Job ready training
- Career counseling
- Resiliency and disaster preparedness
- Connections with local employers
The Volt Toolbelt Trust is made possible by grants provided by the Harold H. Bate Foundation and the Craven CC Foundation.
*Subject to funding availability and classroom capacity. Funding does not include costs associated with books and other course materials.
