VGCC Community & Economic Development offers a little something for everyone

From computer skills to quilting and everything in between, a variety of Vance-Granville Community College courses are scheduled to be offered in 2010. The spring semester begins Jan. 6 and ends May 11.

Throughout the year, the college’s Community and Economic Development division provides opportunities for adults to hone their basic skills, complete a high school diploma, obtain training to help them become employed or advance on the job, and enjoy hobbies in their leisure time.

Printed “ARCHES” schedules for classes such as these are available in newspaper-style boxes placed in various locations throughout the communities served by VGCC. The locations include the Henderson Post Office, Henderson Square Shopping Center, Henderson Mall, Warren Corners Shopping Center in Norlina, the Youngsville Post Office, Moss Foods in Louisburg, the Oxford Post Office, the Creedmoor Post Office and the Butner Post Office. Community and Economic Development schedules can be found in the boxes, in addition to schedules for VGCC curriculum programs.

Schedules are also available at the four VGCC campuses: Main Campus in Vance County, South Campus between Butner and Creedmoor, Warren County Campus in Warrenton and Franklin County Campus near Louisburg.

Registration details, fees and other policies vary by program. Adult Basic Education / General Education Development (GED) classes are open throughout the semester on VGCC’s four campuses and at various community locations, for example, while some Computer Center , Public Services or Small Business Center courses may only last for one day or several weeks.

“Vance-Granville is really a resource for everyone in the community,” said VGCC Vice President of Community and Economic Development Vanessa Jones. “Last year, more than 12,000 students took advantage of our opportunities, whether they wanted to enrich their personal lives, learn occupational skills or get their high school diploma. All of this combines to create a better quality of life and a trained workforce that supports economic growth.”
