FSIC American Innovation and Opportunity Fund (AIOF) congratulates graduates from its most recent Dream Creators Workforce Development Program cohort.  All students in the Dream Creators program received advanced training and incidental support before and during the Nash Community College Underground Electrical Line Construction program in July and August.  They recently received their graduation certificates and were offered employment at a major energy company.  These young people can expect to earn $50,000 or more in their first year.  “AIOF is honored to have facilitated this program and is very proud of our graduates.  We believe this is an excellent opportunity for these students to have a meaningful and prosperous career”, said Kevin B. Kimble, CEO of AIOF.

AIOF would like to thank our partners Duke Energy, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference Roanoke Valley Chapter (SCLC-Roanoke Valley), Beyond Finance, the Partnership for Innovation and Empowerment, and the Financial Services Innovation Coalition (FSIC) for their continued support of the AIOF Dream Creators Workforce Development Program.  AIOF looks forward to helping more young people in the future through this program.
