Workforce Training

Dedicated to Developing a Thriving Workforce

As Greensboro and the region reinvent themselves to accommodate 21st century companies and to transition from an economy based on textiles, tobacco, and furniture, The Cemala Foundation invests in workforce training initiatives.  Some of these investments are highlighted below.

It is our hope that our contribution to key areas of career and technical education (CTE) will expand nurturing learning environments in which CTE students can gain important workforce experience and knowledge that will serve them in their careers.  It is our desire to strengthen the resources and environment for adults seeking new opportunities and/or expanding their education and life skills.

Career & Technical Education

To encourage higher graduation rates in Career and Technical Education and to provide enhanced opportunities for Guilford County students, Cemala has supported a variety of programs throughout the community.

Community Support Programs

Students of all ages are best supported when their life at home is safe, loving, and dependable.  Underemployed, nonnative English speakers, and others in the work force seek opportunities to strengthen their skill set to ensure career success.

UNCG - MPA Program

The Master in Public Affairs Graduate program at UNCG is an important part of training next-generation leaders in the nonprofit sector and in public service. Through this program, students are offered three concentrations from which to choose:

  1. Community and Economic Development
  2. Local Government Management
  3. Nonprofit Management

For over 10 years, The Cemala Foundation has supported this program and the opportunities it affords its students.

Action Greensboro

Action Greensboro, together with the Chamber of Commerce, serves as the city’s primary economic and community development group. Formed in 2001, Action Greensboro is comprised of six local charitable foundations. In collaboration with business, higher education, and municipal government, Action Greensboro works to strengthen Greensboro’s economy and ensure the continuation of its excellent quality of life.

From cradle to career, The Cemala Foundation supports growth and advancement initiatives throughout our community members’ lives
