Today, Dr. Jill Biden and Labor Secretary Tom Perez will visit Cleveland Community College in North Carolina and Broward College in Florida as part of their “Community College to Career” tour designed to highlight innovative workforce training partnerships.
Dr. Biden and Secretary Perez will meet with students, tour innovative labs and classrooms, and learn more about the Labor Department’s Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grants. These unprecedented investments are helping leverage strong partnerships with local employers to transform community colleges into engines of economic growth across the country.
