Sector & Community Colleges

What role can partnership between community colleges and nonprofits play in sector initiatives? How can low-income adults be better supported to succeed in community college?

Community colleges can play an important role in sector initiatives by providing training that meets the needs of workers and employers.  We see partnerships between community colleges and nonprofits as an effective approach for serving low-income individuals who often need a wide range of services to complete education programs and obtain quality employment.  AspenWSI conducted the Courses to Employment (C2E) project, a three year demonstration investigating the role of nonprofit-community college partnerships in supporting low-income adults in community college.  Resources in this section draw heavily on the C2E project. AspenWSI also participates in the Community College-Career Collaboration (C4) project, a nationwide initiative to support partnerships between Goodwill Industries affiliates and community colleges managed by Goodwill Industries International and the American Association of Community Colleges.
