Metal Meets Mettle: Legendary Rockers Fund Grant Initiative for Getting Students into the Workforce
Guth, Douglas J.
Community College Journal, v93 n3 p23-27 Dec 2022-Jan 2023
Metallica's All Within My Hands is a workforce education initiative that provides direct support to community colleges to enhance their career and technical education programs. In 2019, AWMH--alongside initiative sponsor the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC)--provided 10 schools with $100,000 each for tuition help, safety gear and learning materials. Since inception, the program has graduated 80%-90% of participants, with 95% of Metallica scholars finding jobs directly related to their studies. SUNY Westchester Community College received $50,000 in 2021--the institution's second year in the program-focusing mostly on training workers for the region's growing advanced manufacturing sector. The college, which serves 31,000 full- and part-time learners in New York state, has further harnessed grants for cybersecurity and jobs around healthcare, namely nursing assistants, phlebotomists and EKG technicians. This article discusses the impact of the AWMH program on the community colleges it partners with.
