Postsecondary Education Resources
OYP created resources for youth and young adults who are interested in attending postsecondary education, to find their best-fit education and training program.
For more information on these tools or for guidance on how best to use them, contact OYP’s Pathways Coordinator, Erica DiPietro at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Community College Certificate Programs
A tool created for service providers to use with youth who are interested in attending a certificate program through the Santa Clara County Community Colleges. One might use this tool when discussing the differences between each Community College, such as available programs, start dates, and campus supports. Click for PDF. Click For Link.
Career Technical Education (CTE) Programs
A tool created for service providers to use with youth who are interested in obtaining postsecondary education outside of the traditional college setting. Similar to certificate programs offered at Community Colleges, CTE programs provide focused, short-term career training options.
