Welcome to Strong Workforce Program

The Strong Workforce Program funding presents an exciting opportunity to strengthen Career and Technical Education enrollment at CCSF, address existing gaps in funding for CTE programs, spur innovation in CTE offerings, and put in place a solid infrastructure for CTE program delivery.

We will use this page to link to resources, meeting dates and post other relevant information. 

We are currently implementing the strategic plan that was approved in December 2016. We plan to update the plan as needed to meet future goals. Below is a link to the final plan. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would like to join upcoming meetings.
