Career Learning for Adult Self-Sufficiency (CLASS)

American Association of Community College;s (AACC) Virtual Incubation Network (VIN) Toolkit

Posted by Maisha Meminger - On July 31, 2012 (EST)

As communities across the country revitalize their local economies with entrepreneurship and small business growth, they often call on community colleges and their partners to provide skilled training, educational services and guidance to build out innovative ideas. Many colleges establish small business incubators to nurture companies through the most challenging start-up stages of development, with an ultimate aim of increasing jobs and revenue in the local community. The development of the VIN recognizes that these services need not depend on a traditional brick-and-mortar facility. Instead the VIN’s new delivery mechanisms include support provided at the business site and hybrid in-person and technology processes. The tools created by the VIN will help community colleges grow entrepreneur talent while offering more flexible delivery to existing small business owners and start-up businesses leaders.

Condensed Curriculum International, est 1993 in association with Pearson Education has online healthcare courses for national certification by students. Colleges partner with CCI,Inc. Taking one of these courses while in high school reduces the dropout rate dramatically. Many dual enrollment programs use CCI, Inc. Jobs are plentiful in the healthcare field. Sidney B.
