Our Mission: To collaborate, as an education-business community partnership, to create career pathways for all Trinity County students, as our future workforce.
Trinity Together: Cradle to Career Partnership (TTCCP) is comprised of leaders from the Trinity County Office of Education and the education community, the local business community and local service organizations. This collaborative focuses on youth between the ages of 0-24, and joins the efforts already in place in Shasta County, with Reach Higher Shasta, and Tehama County, with Expect More Tehama, as well as newly formed collaboratives in Siskiyou and Modoc counties all under the umbrella of North State Together.
North State Together was formed through a $2.5 million dollar, three year grant awarded by the McConnell Foundation, allowing the creation of a regional hub, which in turn supports the collaborative efforts in the five-county region of the North State. The overarching goal is to increase educational options at all levels, with ultimate impacts on overall economic and community health; however, North State Together strives to balance community autonomy with broader support so that local leaders can create local solutions that directly connect to community needs. The hope is that this initiative will help each county to help them address their unique community needs by leveraging partnerships in the business, philanthropic, nonprofit, civic, faith and educational communities and assist people and communities in career advancement, economic growth, and improved health.
Program support and coordination is provided by the Watershed Research and Training Center in Hayfork, California. Their mission is to create and sustain healthy lands and healthy communities. The WRTC works locally, regionally, and nationally to develop innovative approaches to natural resource management, economic development and community resilience. Through collaboration with communities, partner organizations, public agencies, and businesses, the WRTC is implementing land stewardship, creating jobs and fostering development, and building new foundations to connect people to the land and each other.
