Who We Are

The Southwest Bay Area Career Pathways Consortium (SWBACPC) is geographically framed by the southwest region of the San Francisco Bay Area from San Francisco through San Jose, Silicon Valley and continuing south to Monterey and is a partnership effort between 14 Community Colleges and their feeder K12 schools. Foothill College is the fiscal agent to the SB 1070 grant in this region.

The SWBACPC is a partner effort with the North/East Bay. While the work in our region is distinct based on our demographics and needs, our efforts are ultimately coordinated across the region.
