Russell Lee Jones Vocational Training Incorporated is a registered 501-C-3 non-profit corporation based in Charlotte, NC.
The mission of Russell Lee Jones Vocational Training Incorporated is threefold: To provide traditional Middle and High School instruction in preparation for those seeking post-secondary education upon graduation, to provide Trade-Specific Training for those seeking to enter the workforce upon graduation, and to provide a "hybrid" implementation for those seeking a combination of both outcomes.
Russell Lee Jones Vocational Training Incorporated is a future Charter School applicant seeking to implement a platform that provides Middle and High School students an opportunity for "College Readiness and/or Career Readiness", or a combination of both outcomes.
Russell Lee Jones Vocational Training Incorporated is overseen by a Board of Directors comprised of Business Owners, Industry Professionals, and Former Educators seeking to use standard North Carolina Middle and High School curriculum combined with curriculum developed by Industry Professionals. Russell Lee Jones Vocational Training Incorporated will be affiliated with regional Trade Associations such as, but not limited to, the Carolina's Association of Building Contractors (ABC), and the Carolina's Association of General Contractors (AGC).
While the Local Educational Association (LEA) has chosen "Preparing Students for Greatness and Global Competition" as their motto, Russell Lee Jones Vocational Training Incorporated has chosen "Preparing Trainees for their Individual Futures, Employment and Economic Viability" as our goal.
We believe that young people deserve the choice to be prepared for their Individual Career Pathway whatever it might be for each Student/Trainee.
