Clackamas Workforce Partnership

Youth Programs

C-TEC Youth Provider: The success of the C-TEC Youth Services program relies on collaborative partnerships and linkages among local high schools, Clackamas Community College, state and county agencies, community-based organizations, and local businesses. For more information about C-TEC's year-round and summer programs, please go to the C-TEC website.


Roadtrips: Sponsored by the Clackamas Workforce Partnership, free outings to potential careers with participating local businesses. Throughout the school year, senior and junior high school students as well as their parents, teachers and career counselors, are invited to join a tour to learn more about a particular field and careers within businesses. For more information contact Amy Oakley or amy.oakley@clackamasworkforce.org.


National Career Readiness Certificate: As part of Oregon's Certified Work Ready Communities (CWRC) initiative, the NCRC is a portable credential that demonstrates achievement and a certain level of workplace employability skills in math, locating information, and reading. For more information on the CWRC & NCRC, please go to the C-TEC NCRC website or contact Julia Metz at julia.metz@clackamasworkforce.org or call 503-657-6770.


Regional Workforce Collaborative: Because we recognize the importance of integrating a regional perspective into the work we do, the Clackamas Workforce Partnership makes up one-third of the Columbia-Willamette Workforce Collaborative (CWWC). Together, the Collaborative aligns capabilities and resources to improve the region’s ability to leverage and layer funding streams, to coordinate ideas and strategies, to pursue resources and fill gaps, to link workforce supply and industry demand, and enable life-long learning and advancement. For more information on the Collaborative go to the CWWC website.


Other Resources:

Emerging Workforce Committee: The Emerging Workforce Committee is made up of private and public sector representatives focused on creating awareness and opportunities for Clackamas County's future workforce. We are always looking for private sector engagement to support these initiatives and welcome your participation. For more information contact Amy Oakley or greg.goloborodko@clackamasworkforce.org.
