The California Community College Linked Learning Initiative (CCCLLI) brings together Linked Learning high schools, community colleges, business leaders and four year colleges and universities to create pathways for Linked Learning students to successfully transition from high school to community college. These pathways will enable students to earn a certificate, degree or credential that is valued by employers and demonstrates career readiness or sufficient preparation to succeed at a four year college or university.
At Berkeley City College, the CCCLLI has partnered the multimedia arts department with the computer technology academy at Oakland Unified School District’s Skyline High School to update articulation agreements, provide transitional services, hold joint industry advisory boards, and a large event engaging high school and community college students in the classroom and theater to explore careers in multimedia art.
