EXCEL is the Experience Community Employability Leaders. EXCEL is a comprehensive program for Putnam County students that prepares youth for the workforce. In partnership with schools and employers, EXCEL raises student aspirations; teaches teamwork and leadership; and instills workplace values while helping young people successfully transition through and beyond high school.
Becci Motes' EXCEL program in the Putnam County School District collaborates closely with FTN by advocating for food-insecurity and gaining professional and social skills. Students volunteer to organize school pantries and attend and assist in events and fundraisers; this helps them to learn the fundamentals of a non-profit organization
The EXCEL program participates in several events put on by Feed the Need, such as Giving Tuesday, Hunger Fight packing events, and other fundraisers. This helps build project management skills as well as morale; teaching these students that they can be the change for their peers and younger children in the Putnam County Community.
Executive Director of Feed the Need, Denise Bramlitt, often demonstrates the importance of education in professionalism and business to students. FTN strongly believes in the gravity of teaching Putnam County's future leaders to be the absolute best.
