CAA Celebration 2013

On Tuesday, December 4, the Center for Workforce Development’s Career Advancement Academy, hosted its end of the semester celebration for Allied Health and Early Childhood Education Students. Current CAA students mingled with students from previous cohorts and were joined by CAA faculty members, counselors, and administrators. More than fifty people gathered to celebrate with CAA students—current bridge participants along with those in their full programs—and to acknowledge students’ hard work and perseverance both this semester and in past semesters. Congratulations, Career Advancement Academy Students, on making it to the final stretch, and good luck on your finals!

The Career Advancement Academy creates bridges to higher-wage careers and additional opportunities in higher education by integrating career and technical training, basic skills courses, and support systems. Currently, the Skyline College CAA has programs in Allied Health, Automotive, and Early Childhood Education. The CAA will launch its Paralegal Career Advancement Academy in fall 2014.
