 Goodwill Industries International, Inc. - Community College/Career Collaboration 

The Community College/Career Collaboration (C4) is an initiative launched in 2009 by the American Association of Community Colleges, Goodwill Industries International, Inc., the Aspen Institute, Jobs for the Future, and three pilot local community college/Goodwill partnerships with successful, replicable models of collaboration. The project’s purpose is to increase college and career success for low-income adults through documenting, promoting and replicating these models throughout the Goodwill and community college networks.

The three pilot community colleges identified for their partnership models are:

  • Northern Virginia Community College, VA
  • The Alamo Colleges, TX
  • Forsyth Technical Community College, NC

The C4 initiative equips community colleges and Goodwills to build on existing relationships, extract effective practice, and replicate model components to increase the number of individuals accessing and completing labor market-relevant credentialing programs offered by community colleges. For more information view a PDF summary of the project.


Check out how local Goodwills and community colleges around the country have partnered to produce successful outcomes through the C4 Initiative:
