K-12 Partnerships

Giving students a head start

Give your students a head start on their career in retail, hospitality and tourism by partnering with the California Community Colleges. California Community Colleges are considered one of the best options for building and enhancing technical skills and launching new careers.

Career Pathways

The Retail, Hospitality, and Tourism Initiative is committed to serving K-12 schools throughout California by assisting them in building career pathways for students that prepare them to start a career upon graduation.  We are focused on connecting K-12 schools, Community Colleges and industry to create clear pathways for students and a pipeline of skilled workers for business and industry.

We are here to help

Please contact your local Deputy Sector Navigator or Statewide Sector Navigator to discuss articulation agreements, support in creating or updating your CTE programs to reflect the needs of industry, or to host a career fair or student bootcamp.
