Amador College Connect announces office relocation and expansion

Amador College Connect announces the relocation of its college support center to Jackson Creek Plaza located at 525-6 Hwy 49 in Jackson.  The Amador College Connect Center provides a thoughtfully planned space with resources for students to meet, study, and network.  Current Amador College Connect students also benefit from a variety of services offered there that include:  mentoring through college success steps, financial aid assistance, textbook purchase, tutoring, and student internships.  Services are available to Amador College Connect students at no cost.
Prospective students can obtain information about distance education programs and courses at Amador College Connect.  Amador College Connect provides distance education degree, certificate, and transfer programs through regional college partners.  Applications for fall admission are being accepted now.

“Amador College Connect takes great pride in helping adult learners pursue a college education locally while continuing with their busy lives,” said Paul Molinelli, Jr., Chair of the Amador Community College Foundation Board.  “The new Amador College Connect Center helps us do this while also bringing us closer to the community here in Amador County.”

Amador College Connect has also recently launched a student internship program through Amador College Connect.  We are partnering with area companies and agencies to enhance the education of students by providing relevant field experience prior to graduation, balancing classroom theory with practical, hands-on experiences.   In this way, Amador College Connect can partner with local businesses for their training needs, as well as, become an active community member.  The internship program is financed through generous grants from Pacific Gas and Electric Foundation, Bank of America Charitable Foundation, and the Sierra Health Foundation.

We are conducting an online survey regarding the needs of Amador County employers for workforce training.  Amador College Connect requests Amador County employers to take our survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/amadorbusinesssurvey.

Amador College Connect is open Tuesday and Thursday from 4:00 to 8:00 PM and Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM.  More information can be found at www.amadorcollegeconnect.org or by calling 209.217.8239.
