Golden LEAF Opportunities for Work in Aerospace Manufacturing

Golden LEAF Opportunities for Work in Aerospace Manufacturing (GLOW-AM) is a special workforce development program, based on the findings of a report on a statewide workforce needs assessment and educational gap analysis for the emerging aerospace industry in North Carolina. The report provides insight into workforce needs of aircraft manufacturing and support industries and educational training capacity gaps and recommends strategies for consideration.

GLOW-AM is targeting select community colleges, universities, high schools, and 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations that serve tobacco-dependent, economically distressed and/or rural communities of North Carolina where demand exists for production and engineering talent in aerospace manufacturing and maintenance, repair and overhaul operations. Golden LEAF has set aside $5 million for this invitation only program to help address some of the urgent workforce requirements North Carolina faces in nurturing and growing the emerging aerospace manufacturing sector.
