Skyline College Career Advancement Academy (CAA) Student Profiles

From 2015 to 2016, the Career Ladders Project provided technical assistants to Skyline College’s Career Advancement Academies. CLP supported with faculty exchange across CAA sites including site visits and peer mentoring. CLP also advised Skyline leadership, their partners, various boards, and coordinators with strategic alignments of CAA programs across the San Mateo County Community College District. Part of the work with Skyline included documenting student stories and their experiences to produce one pagers and videos of student voices. The CAAs were implemented in four community college regions; San Francisco, SF East Bay, Central Valley, and the greater Los Angeles region. The CAAs were initiated and funded by the California Community College Chancellor’s Office (CCCCO) in 2007.
