California Community Colleges Economic & Workforce Development
Economic recovery without workforce training or appropriate funding?

The California Community Colleges are a smart investment for California's economic recovery—we are the state’s largest workforce training provider serving over 2.7 million Californians each year. The California Community College’s Economic and Workforce Development (CCCEWD) is a critical initiative of the colleges, developing and implementing training and curriculum in key strategic industry sectors that create the jobs and career pathways for students.

Three reasons CCCEWD is a smart investment:

1. Relevancy:

Improving educational attainment benefits our state through increased tax revenues and the social and economic mobility that accompanies higher levels of education.


2. Return:

At a time when every dollar counts, EWD functions as a no cost program to provide taxpayers with a high return-on-investment.


3. Recovery:

Our programs ensure that all Californians, including our current high rates of displaced workers, have access to education that can retool their skills and prepare them for market demands.
