Eastern Sierra K16 Collaborative Eastern Sierra K16 Collaborative

The Eastern Sierra K16 Collaborative is part of a statewide strategy for strengthening education-to-workforce pathways and ensuring that education, vocational and workforce programs work in partnership to address the income, racial, and gender inequalities in education and employment.

Columbia College joins with partners from K-12, Post-Secondary and Industry partners in the region. These include University of California, Merced, California State University, Stanislaus, the Superintendents of Schools in each participating county, many K-12 districts, and workforce investment boards including Mother Lode Job Training. Additional industry partners include Adventist Health Sonora, MACT Health Board Inc. and Apple Inc.

The seven-county Eastern Sierra region includes two distinct geographic regions; a core of four adjacent Mother Lode counties that have a long history of working together (Tuolumne, Calaveras, Amador and Mariposa) and are linked by the Highway 49 corridor, and three rural, remote counties on the Eastern side of the Sierra Nevada Mountain range (Alpine, Inyo and Mono) that are linked by the Highway 395 corridor.
