Carolina Across 100 Opportunity Youth

Our State, Our Work

Carolina Across 100 selected thirteen groups in North Carolina to expand education and employment pathways for young adults. The groups – made up of business, civic, education, nonprofit, faith-based, and government entities representing thirty-seven counties from the mountains to the coast – have received a variety of supports from the University, all aimed at connecting North Carolina’s young adults to jobs that pay a living wage. Eastern Carolina Workforce Development Board, Inc. (ECWDB) was one of the thirteen partnerships selected, representing Carteret, Craven, Duplin, Greene, Jones, Lenoir, Onslow, Pamlico, and Wayne counties. We have partnered with the region’s local community colleges, public schools, and community organizations to spearhead this exciting initiative.

Our goal is to find young adults who are not enrolled in school or engaged in the workforce
and present them with education and training opportunities that will lead to good wages and a bright future.
