LAVC Awarded $3M US Dept of Education Grant

The Los Angeles Valley College (LAVC) has been awarded a five-year $3 million Title V grant from the U.S. Department of Education to expand its dual enrollment program. The Caminos Al Triunfo: Dual Enrollment to Career project, which is Spanish for “Paths to Success, will increase college-level course offerings at high school campuses and create new career pathways for students of color.

“Our Caminos Al Triunfo project will make a meaningful impact to the lives of students in the eastern San Fernando Valley,” said Dr. Barry Gribbons, president of Los Angeles Valley College. “Our new career pathways will launch students towards paths to success—from high school to college completion to careers in high-demand, high wage fields.”

The goal of this new project is to increase the success of Latinx and low income dual enrollment students at the high schools in the eastern region of the San Fernando Valley. It will also improve collaboration between the college’s Career Transfer Center and Workforce Development department to connect to work-based learning to a viable career, and enhance faculty-student engagement through offering culturally inclusive, equity minded professional development training for dual enrollment faculty.
