A broken-down car or unreliable childcare can make the difference between completing a certificate program and getting a good job or continuing the cycle of struggle familiar to the hundreds of students pursing Career Technical Education (CTE) at community colleges across the state. Merced College has designed a new support system specifically to assist these aspiring students in completing their coursework and transitioning from school to employment.
The Workplace Internship Network (WIN) at Merced College provides personalized CTE completion counseling and connects students to internships that help launch their careers.
