UVA Pipelines & Pathways
UVA Pipelines & Pathways was thrilled to welcome community members and job seekers to the program's Grand Opening on May at the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center.
UVA leadership, including President, Jim Ryan, and Human Resources Vice President and CHRO, John Kosky, delivered remarks on behalf of UVA, and were joined by Vice-Mayor Juan Wade, who spoke on behalf of the City of Charlottesville.
Three program participants shared their experiences with Pipelines & Pathways, which aims to increase the number of individuals residing in underserved communities in the Charlottesville region who are hired by the University and support them through their career so they continue to progress and succeed.
During the event, Pipelines & Pathways also announced its new training program, HOOS Driving, which provides paid training for individuals who become bus drivers for University Transit Service and Charlottesville Area Transit.
