Funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, Phase II of the Building Community Partnerships to Serve Immigrant Workers (BCPIW) initiative builds upon the pilot phase implemented in 2015 (funded by the Ford Foundation).

- Seven teams composed of community college and CBO members
- Implement programs designed during pilot phase
- Participate in peer learning event and receive monthly technical assistance conference calls
- The Aspen Institute’s Workforce Strategies Initiative (AspenWSI) will conduct research and document key themes around partnership building between immigrant-serving organizations and community colleges.
