Dave Wilson is a Great Oaks Career Campuses supporter and believes in helping students overcome barriers to employment, including obtaining their driver's license. This grant is to help students complete drivers education training, which will help them gain employment in their field of study.
The Duke Energy Foundation has awarded the Great Oaks Education Foundation funds to support high school and adult students as they begin their career. Bridging the Gap to Employment focuses on preparing our students with the education and tools needed for their career field. We believe by helping our students with tool costs while in school (adults) as well as for employment (high school) we will be able to help fill employment gaps in critical areas, which has a direct impact on our communities.
