Valley Interfaith Project Supports Maricopa Community Colleges

As part of a long-term regional economic development strategy, Valley Interfaith Project leader Monica Dorcey testified at a Maricopa Community College District board meeting to support increasing local investment in the community colleges.  ”These community colleges are the best driver of economic development that we have,” said Dorcey, who is also a member of the board of Arizona Career Pathways, a non-profit job-training program that has a partnership with the community colleges.

“If you don’t have a skilled workforce you’re not going to have an economic recovery for everybody.”
