About

GLCCPP logo

Funded by the Joyce Foundation, the Great Lakes College and Career Pathways Partnership (GLCCPP) seeks to improve the educational and employment outcomes of residents in four Great Lakes regions: 

  • Central Ohio/Greater Columbus, Ohio
  • Madison, Wisconsin
  • Northwest Suburbs of Chicago, Illinois
  • Rockford, Illinois

JFF supports these communities in scaling and sustaining a robust college and career pathways ecosystem by helping to develop critical capacity and systemic infrastructure—particularly at the postsecondary education and employer levels.

JFF also supports clarifying and strengthening industry-aligned secondary through postsecondary pathways designs, implementation, and improvement to ensure successful college and career outcomes for students with a focus on: 

  1. Postsecondary engagement and pathways alignment
  2. Employer engagement and work-based learning
  3. Governance and infrastructure
