The Illinois Community College Board has awarded $1.2 million to Lincoln Land Community College to continue their Open Door Workforce Equity Initiative. The initiative allows low income students to enroll in a variety of different short-term training programs that can lead to immediate employment opportunities at no cost.
There are various training programs available including truck driver training, automotive technology, welding and various health care programs such as Certified Nurses Assistant, clinical medical assistant, dental assistant and a variety of others.
Vice President of student services Dr. Lesley Frederick said, “LLCC is committed to equity and ensuring all individuals have access to opportunities for career success.. This grant will allow us to expand this life-changing program aimed at improving equity in the workforce and addressing identified workforce gaps in our community.”
