Clackamas Community College is holding a series of virtual information sessions for its Clackamas Scholars program.
The Clackamas Scholars program is a tuition-free, federally funded grant. Through the program, eligible young adults ages 16-24 will gain academic and employment skills necessary to be competitive in the current job market.
According to CCC, the training they receive will prepare them for meaningful careers in high-wage, high-demand industries or apprenticeships. The program can also help students earn their GEDs or complete high school.
Some of the programs students can pursue through Clackamas Scholars include:
• Machine tool technology
• Computer science
• Health sciences
• Electrical engineering
• Industrial maintenance
• Automotive technology
• Business technology
• Renewable energy technology
• Water/environmental quality
Information session participants will learn about opportunities for training and employment supports through the Clackamas Scholars Grant, including personalized job coaching, career counseling and wraparound supports to help with school supplies, transportation and more.
"If you are between 16 and 24 and want to train for a well-paying career in a year or less, this program may be right for you," Tom Brown, program outreach coordinator, said. "You can earn a college certificate at no cost in a career that interests you."
