Community Colleges Respond to Needs of Retail Workers: Lessons Learned from Achieving the Dream's Building Stronger Pathways to Retail Careers Initiative

ATD’s Building Stronger Pathways to Retail Careers Initiative sought to provide clearer pathways to sustainable careers in retail for students and strengthen community college and retail employer partnerships. Four community colleges — Broward College and Tallahassee College in Florida, Durham Technical Community College in North Carolina, and Umpqua Community College in Oregon — participated in this initiative.

While each of the colleges focused on different aspect of the retail industry and employed different programmatic approaches, the initial observations from the campuses and the lessons learned that can be applied moving forward focus on a set of common themes that emerged across the initiative.  Read more details about the lessons learned from ATD's Building Stronger Pathways to Retail Careers Initiative.
