LAVC Receives a Grant to Establish an Internship Pipeline Program

The LAVC Cooperative Education Office has received a $100,000 grant from the California Community College Linked Learning (CCCLL) Work-Based Learning Development agency for the 2015-2016 fiscal year. The funds will be used to create the Valley Internship Pipeline Program (VIPP), which will serve sixty high-school students.

The VIPP program seeks to simultaneously align existing regional initiatives and Linked Learning high school programs, and plans to be “grounding up” best practices and solutions for high school community college partnerships that can serve as a model and be adopted throughout the state to increase internship pipelines.

The LAVC Cooperative Education Program currently offers work-based learning experiences for community college students, provides employer outreach, offers career readiness and advancement seminars, and manages an online job resource center.  Additionally, the program works to align with the campus’s Career/Technical Education (CTE) efforts and programs.

Congratulations!
