• CMS, employment agency helps prepare students for workforce


    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Charlotte leaders are trying to help students become better prepared for the workforce.

    Charlotte Works is teaming up with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools to provide a program in schools.

    It will give students the opportunity to become skilled workers.

    One graduate is now working as an apprentice for a manufacturing company.

    He said it's a great way for him to learn more about his trade.

    "By becoming proficient and skilled in learning, how to properly operate this machinery, how it works, I'll be able to better apply that to whatever I choose to go into," said Maceo Rucker-Shivers.

    On Tuesday, Charlotte Works is set to announce a new website that will help students connect to work-based learning programs.
