Workforce Connections was funded by a grant awarded by the John T. Vucurevich Foundation. The grant funding provides assistance and support to adult education students so that they can enter into and succeed in post-secondary programs that ultimately lead to wages for families to be self-sufficient, while creating a pipeline to meet high-demand, high-wage jobs in the Rapid City area. The project will be implemented through BHSSC’s Career Learning Center of the Black Hills, located on Watertown Street in North Rapid City.
