E2 Program Recognizes First Class of Students
The Community Foundation of Northeast Alabama is celebrating the success of a program implemented four years ago to address the problem of area children under the age of five living in poverty.
The E2 Program focuses on young children and their parents to provide educational and employment opportunities which lead to long-term financial stability. Leaders of the program gathered Tuesday to recognize their first class of students enrolling in programs at Gadsden State Community College.
When participants complete their individual education programs, they will also get employment opportunities through East AlabamaWorks and the Gadsden Career Center. E2 Program participants are at least 18 years old and have at least one child who is five is younger.
