NEPA RISE is now Enrolling!

NEPA RISE is now enrolling for Fall 2024. RISE is an excellent opportunity for anyone interested in gaining short-term credentialing with higher-wage employment opportunities. ⭐️RISE offers various support services to ensure participants have the tools, resources, and confidence to succeed in their education and employment. This is done through one-on-one coaching, case management, and cohort instruction. ⭐️If education has been a goal that seems out of reach due to the cost of childcare, transportation, or other financial concerns, RISE may be the answer. It has locations in Lackawanna and Luzerne Counties. 💖

UNC is proud to be a partner of this workforce program with Johnson College, Luzerne County Community College, The Institute for Public Policy & Economic Development, The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, and the William G. McGowan Charitable Fund.
