The Comcast Foundation announced a $25,000 grant to the National Puerto Rican Coalition's College to Career (C2C) Program.
“C2C is a seven-week curriculum that educates students on topics not typically covered in the classroom -- among them, corporate hiring and interviewing processes and Latino economic buying power,” the NPRC said in a prepared statement.
“After students have completed the program, they can take advantage of additional development services that will make them more marketable to potential employers,” the NPRC added. “In addition to the professional training and guidance that students will receive, the program also will work to develop the technical and social skill set necessary for individuals to advance in corporate America.”
“Comcast is committed to fostering the growth of diversity in corporate America," said David L. Cohen, executive vice president of Comcast and chairman of the Comcast Foundation, in a prepared statement. "We are proud to be a part of the C2C program and contribute to the development of young Hispanic leaders throughout the country.”
