Finding A new Path Forward
Lynchburg Beacon of Hope’s Career Acceleration Program aims to accelerate the training, mentorship, career development, and placement of talented opportunity youth and prime-age workers in the region. This partnership among Lynchburg Beacon of Hope, Promise Pathways, the GO Virginia Region 2 Council, the Lynchburg Regional Business Alliance, Central Virginia Community College, and regional employers will launch in summer 2023.
This program is an effort to re-engage underserved, underemployed, undereducated, and underrepresented individuals in finding and preparing for upwardly mobile careers. This project enables Beacon of Hope to partner with the Town of Altavista, broadening our scope of impact and provide more data to create a demonstration project that can be modeled regionally and nationally.
