Community College/Career Collaboration (C4): Tacoma Goodwill Industries and Pierce County Community and Technical Colleges

C4: An Introduction
In 2009 with support from Lumina Foundation, Goodwill Industries International (GII) and the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) launched Community College Career Collaboration (C4), an initiative capitalizing on the alignment of the organizations’ missions to advance credentials and employment success for populations with low incomes that were underserved. Originally launched in Northern Virginia, Winston-Salem, NC, and San Antonio TX, C4 seeks to augment existing collaborations and expand the reach and success of community colleges and Goodwill throughout the country.

Tacoma Goodwill Industries participates in a collaborative effort of 40 community- and fait-based organizations to create educational, workforce training and career opportunities for youth ages 16 to 24 who are at risk and have low incomes. The REACH Center, located within the Goodwill’s Work Opportunity Center, offers a one-stop center specifically designed for this population.
