Camp’s Career Pathways: Get Skilled, Get a Job, Give Back
In January 2019, Camp Community College was awarded a “G3” planning grant. The Get Skilled, Get a Job, Give Back grant is helping Camp Community College strengthen existing programs and further develop career pathways that prepare students for well-paying, in-demand careers.
In addition, the grant is helping Camp implement an online orientation for all new students, improve course scheduling so that students can more easily complete their studies and enter the workforce, expand pathways to dual enrolled students, and grow partnerships with employers to provide more work-based learning opportunities for students.
Several career pathways and associated services being strengthened under this grant include:
