Promoting College and Career Readiness: Bridge Programs for Low-Skilled Youth and Adults

Publication April 2012


The NRCCTE and OVAE hosted a series of webinars based on the findings from the White House Summit on Community Colleges, the Regional Summits that followed, and the Virtual Symposium on Community Colleges. This third webinar in the series highlighted how community colleges, adult education, workforce and industry partners and others are well-positioned to promote college and career readiness through the development and implementation of career pathway bridge programs. This webinar also built on the President’s recent State of the Union address, focusing particularly on community colleges and their role in helping American students and employers gain access to the skills they need to compete in today’s global marketplace.
