Do I have to live in the Charlotte metropolitan area?
Even though our current fellowships are offered virtually, Road to Hire targets individuals living in the Charlotte metropolitan area. Once we are able to resume in-person training, students will train onsite at the Road to Hire South Charlotte campus for 35-40 hours each week.
Is there a minimum GPA requirement for Road to Hire?
There is no specific GPA requirement. We look for candidates who demonstrate a strong work ethic.
Is there an age requirement for the Road to Hire program?
Yes. We're looking for motivated young adults in the greater Charlotte area between the ages of 18 and 25. (You must turn 18 prior to graduating the program.)
Is work authorization required to be eligible for Road to Hire?
Because our mission is to create employment opportunities for motivated young adults, work authorization is a program requirement. This means that you have authorization to work without sponsorship or restrictions for any employer in the US.
