Central Carolina Works (CCW)

Central Carolina Works (CCW) is a collaboration between the three local education agencies served by Central Carolina Community College; the college administration and faculty, and the business communities of Chatham, Harnett, and Lee counties. The project targets dual enrollment participation in the three county service area, while simultaneously building faculty, administration, and curriculum capacity for guiding students and families through the full range of educational and career pathways-both Career and Technical Education (CTE) and College Transfer (CT). CCW employs an individualized advising model that includes 9 full-time Career and College Advisors, stationed on site at each area high school. In addition to providing outreach and advising services to the area's 11,000+ high school students, these advisors serve as primary coordinators of a sustained professional development program that connects schools and classrooms with local business and industry. CCW is also focused on the development of additional CTE pathways, allowing students more opportunities for pathway completion.


Central Carolina Works seeks to promote skills and knowledge that will ready students for success in college and careers leading to economic benefits for individuals and communities through increased participation in North Carolina's Career and College Promise program.
