Career Ladders Project works with California community colleges and their partners statewide to design and strengthen pathways that prepare students for success in both college and career. Well-designed pathways can support students as they enter, navigate, and complete postsecondary education as well as deepen connections among high schools, colleges, and regional industries.

CLP leads new work in guided pathways, a college-wide transformation strategy, in addition to work building on regional and sector-based pathways developed with a wide range of colleges and partners.

Using tools, templates, and mapping processes developed by CLP, as well as inclusive change-management strategies, we bring educators, employers, and community stakeholders together to create more structured and relevant pathways that foster academic and career success.
