College to Career (C2C) is an educational program designed to promote inclusion of students with intellectual disabilities into the college community while pursuing individualized employment goals. NOCCCD is currently one of five educational institutions in California receiving funding from the Department of Rehabilitation (DOR) for the College to Career program. The C2C program is designed to improve employment outcomes for the individuals with intellectual disabilities. Through inclusion in a post-secondary education, persons with intellectual disabilities can expand the range of jobs available to them. NOCCCD works in partnership with the Regional Center of Orange County, DOR, faculty, and employers to provide pre-vocational and vocational services to students with intellectual disabilities. C2C enrollment ranges from one to three years and includes educational and vocational support related to student employment goals, job placement, and job support as needed.
