Support Special Initiatives
Dragon Formula One Racing
The Dragon Formula One Racing Team at Howard Community College is looking to become one of the few community colleges in the Formula One Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) history to design, build, and race its own vehicle. With your support, engineering students at HCC will be an example to community colleges across the nation that they can be as competitive as any team from a four-year school.
The Fueling Dragons programs at Howard Community College encompass a number of initiatives designed to meet the dual goals of: 1) providing immediate support for students who are facing hunger or food insecurity; and 2) working to build sustainable nutrition, food sourcing, and preparation skills through educational experiences and workshops.
Support is needed for several programs within Fueling Dragons, including the HCC on-campus food pantry, health and nutrition education programs, cooking and gardening workshops, educational videos, and other resources for students.
Skilled Immigrant Program
The Skilled Immigrant Program provides job training and career search assistance to foreign-educated professionals seeking jobs in one of four industries: health care, accounting/bookkeeping, IT, and banking/insurance. HCC prepares these individuals with the skills, knowledge, and tools necessary to make connections and secure professional employment in the United States. The program expands on past success of the multicultural banking and finance initiative and health care interpreter program, as well as the knowledge and resources of HCC's English Language Center. Financial support of this program allows HCC to offer these programs at a very low cost to the student.
Thank you to our current donors; Sandy Spring Bank, PNC Foundation, Truist, M&T Bank, Fulton Bank, and SECU. Please consider making a donation to support this program that provides necessary training and career opportunities for skilled immigrants in Howard County by capitalizing on their education, skills, and talents acquired outside the U.S. in order to meet local workforce needs.
