HATTIESBURG, Miss. (WDAM) – A program passed by the state legislature in July is now helping Mississippians receive career-training.
ReSkill Mississippi is a program funded by CARES ACT money appropriated through Mississippi House Bill 1795 that helps people affected by the COVID-19 pandemic get career training for high-demand jobs through non-credit courses in state community colleges.
“The ReSkill MS program is designed to connect Mississippians with training opportunities that lead to jobs now, that lead to career pathways and to help get them into those in demand careers that are still hiring despite the COVID pandemic,” said Rebecca Brown, dean of Workforce and Community Development at Pearl River Community College.
PRCC received $2.2 million of CARES Act funds for this
