Employer Information

The vitality of our community depends on having a skilled workforce, capable of meeting the challenges of the 21st century. Educators are dedicated to improving student outcomes, but they can’t do it without the support and active participation of everyone in the community.

A better educational system, from cradle to career, means more than just increased productivity. People want to live and work in communities that have great schools. So the work you do to help improve the Santa Cruz County educational system--the work of the Santa Cruz County College Commitment--pays multiple dividends into the future. Your employees are better prepared and more productive, and these talented individuals will choose to stay in the community, therefore positively contributing to the local economy.

So specifically, how can you help?
