CCC WELCOMES BUSINESS AND COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT
Contra Costa College is proud of its long history of community and business involvement. The college has many partnerships with local businesses, community agencies, and educational institutions that work together to serve our community and its citizens. Contra Costa College provides educational opportunities, learning resources, and career services and is able to expand its offerings with the help of our business and community partners.
Local business leaders work with college career technical programs and serve as advisory board members ensuring that the college's career programs are providing the training students need to be successful in the work place.
The college also partners with West Contra Costa cities and schools to provide course offerings at locations that are convenient to its community members. This is done through the college's Community Education Department. CCC's El Cerrito Center, in partnership with El Cerrito High School, offers college courses on the El Cerrito High School brand new site. The City of Hercules partners with CCC to offer courses at the Hercules Center in the Library and Senior Center. Community agencies such as senior facilities and churches also serve as locations for college course offerings.
The college can also provide specific training to local businesses and their employees in the form of contract education. Businesses interested in the college's tailored training programs should contact Priscilla Leadon, Dean of Economic Development.
The goal of business and community partnerships is to expand and strengthen learning and instructional opportunities for the citizens of our community and to support the training needs of business and industry. CC enjoys partnerships that benefit the next generation of students, workers, life-long learners, and involved citizens.
