The mission of CCSC is to provide Workforce Development training and job placement assistance for adults who face barriers to long-term successful employment. By helping students obtain skills that translate into stable income, we also help them feed their families. This has an exponential impact that breaks the cycle of dependency; instills a solid work ethic; and puts money back into tax pool as our graduates contribute to the economy.
