Community Education Council

The Community Education Councils (CECs) are non-profit organizations that bring higher education opportunities to rural or educationally underserved communities in Pennsylvania.   They serve their communities by assessing their education and training needs and partnering with providers to offer educational programs.  Programming includes programs, courses or classes leading to professional, vocational or occupational certification or licensure, an associate degree, a bachelor's degree, a master's degree, GED preparation, skill development or skill enhancement for the community workforce and customized job training for community employers.  Further, the Community Education Councils serve as a vehicle for employment opportunities, which meet the community's current and future economic development needs.
