Columbia College Connecting Students With Employers

Sonora, CA — Hear about efforts underway to help Columbia College students gain firsthand career experience.

Dr. Klaus Tenbergen, Columbia College’s Dean of Career Technical Education and Economic Development, will be the guest on Mother Lode Views this weekend. We reported previously that Columbia was awarded at two-year California Apprenticeship Initiative grant in the amount of $960,000. It has helped launch a pilot program called the Columbia College Hospitality Academy through a partnership with Black Oak Casino Resort and the Evergreen and Rush Creek lodges. It will allow students to receive hands on training in the hospitality industry, and Tenbergen hopes the program will eventually be expanded to other sectors and industries.

Tenbergen, who joined Columbia College two years ago, will talk about this effort and other issues on Mother Lode Views.
