There are thousands of men, women and children in our region who, with the proper
support and training, can be vital members of our society. The Community College of
Allegheny County is deeply committed to educating all members of society, regardless
of intellect, mental health, physical disability, lifestyle or socio-economic status.

The CCAC Community Training and Development programs are the hub of that education.
The programs provides job training and teaches life skills to those who can benefit
from this support in order to better socialize, care for themselves and contribute
to society. We provide skills training for those who take care of this special population
and we make sure that the elderly have the proper programs to enjoy and take care
of their affairs.
With our support, these men and women can become chefs, computer programmers and landscapers.
We help them reach their potential as active family members, social group leaders
and best friends.
We open doors to a better quality of life.
