College to Career is a community-based program for students who want to go to college and gain the skills, training, and education they need to achieve their academic and career goals. The program also emphasizes independence and personal choice in using community resources for daily living and future employment.   The multi-year program begins with a self-discovery and community exploration component to help  students to identify and develop a plan to achieve goals.  College to Career is a traditional community college education program that offers services and supports to help students succeed.  Upon completion of the academic component, as the final stage of the program individuals may transition to community jobs, internships, or volunteer programs as they launch their career paths.
