The American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) and the National Governors Association’s Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) are launching a new network that links governors’ offices, community colleges and workforce leaders to help workers navigate transformational changes in the economy caused by the pandemic.
The Reskilling and Recovery Network, which is supported by Lumina Foundation and the Siemens Foundation, will bring together state and community college leaders to offer targeted assistance and identify strategies to provide workers with the skills needed in the changing economy.
Twenty states are in the network: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Connecticut, Colorado, Louisiana, Maryland, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Vermont, Washington and Wisconsin.
