Background

The California Career Pathways Trust was established in 2013 by the state legislature to provide a competitive grant to K-12 schools and community colleges that will better prepare students for the 21st Century workplace.  VC Innovates was one of 12 grant recipients in the state to receive $13.2 million in the first round of funding.  In spring of 2015, our collaborative of partners applied for a second round of funding and was awarded an additional $10.2 million.  Our team is honored to have been selected to implement this $23.4 million multi-year grant that will serve more than 35,000 students in over 120 career pathways.


What if...

an entire community came together in a county-wide effort to support career education in industry sectors that are the economic drivers of our county and region?

What if...

beginning in middle school and high school students had meaningful and comprehensive exposure to high paying, high demand, regionally-based careers, and were exposed to the ideas and visions of industry leaders right here in Ventura County?

What if...

high school, adult school, and college students could participate in an internship, and get practical and hands-on experience and education in an industry that excites them?

And what if...

this entire community came together to design a road map that leads from K-12 to Higher Education, and on to Business and Industry - what would be the outcome?

We know the outcome.  Join us in connecting employers, education, and the community to advance workforce innovation. We are VC Innovates.
