Support Special Initiatives
Dragon Formula Racing
The Dragon Formula 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.
Career Readiness Program
The Career Readiness Program at Howard Community College provides students with job readiness training and connections to industries within their potential area of study or career field. Designed to assist students in developing skills needed to maximize their college experience, begin building their critical thinking skills and professional networks. The program will offer students a wide variety of opportunities during the academic year, including completing a career services assessment, career services workshops, job fair participation, lunch and learns, and mentorship placements.
Support is needed for the Career Readiness Program programs, including mentors, panelists, and job fair vendors.
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 foreign-educated professionals training on networking, interviewing, and navigating the US work environment. 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.
