Then DVC’s Career Advancement Academies (CAA) may be your ticket to a rewarding career through our  Pre-apprenticeship Program  or  Project ACCESS  (Advancing Child Care Education and Student Success).


Career Advancement Academies are community college programs designed to establish the pipelines to college and high wage careers for under prepared and under employed young adults.
