The College Connections Community is an online learning destination that aims to provide community colleges, employers, public workforce system partners, and others across the nation with the resources and tools needed to increase the ability of community colleges to address the challenges of today's workforce. This community will feature resources related to the Strengthening Community Colleges Training Grants program (referred to as Strengthening Community Colleges or SCC). Stay tuned for upcoming changes to this page based on SCC developments!
The College Connections Community also builds on the peer-to-peer sharing of lessons learned and resources developed by community college grantees and others over the four rounds of the U.S. Department of Labor's Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grant program. Sustainability was a cornerstone of TAACCCT, so grantees created a vast array of products that remain relevant for SCC grantees and all community colleges.
