The G3 Program is Designed to Change Lives

G3 Logo

Get Skilled, Get a Job, Get Ahead

On July 1, 2021, BRCC is launching a training and education program for students with a family income of less than $100,000 to help them prepare for good careers and open jobs in Virginia.*

* Estimated income threshold for a family of 4. For eligibility requirements for your family, click here.

These programs are designed to fit around the busy schedules of working students. Each program has three levels that build on each other. After each level, you earn a certification that can lead to a job. This means students can take breaks in between trainings without losing progress along the way to an associate degree.

G3 program funds make up the difference between what federal or state financial aid pays for and the cost of tuition, fees, and books for the program.
