BayPort Credit Union recently announced the official opening of the new Renewable Energy Technology Program for high school students at the Virginia Beach City Public Schools Advanced Technology Center.
The new program is made possible by the $500,000 Accelerating Change Together Grant, which was awarded to the Virginia Beach Education Foundation in 2022.
BayPort, along with two other leading organizations based in Newport News, came together to create and fund the $500,000 Accelerating Change Together Grant. The inaugural year grant focus was education and workforce development, answering the regional call to build a workforce pipeline for young people to enter the emerging career fields of renewable energy technologies.
The VBCPS Advanced Technology Center prepares high school students for careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The new program will serve about 40 students annually through the courses Renewable Energy Technologies I and II.
