North Orange County Regional Consortium for Adult Education
North Orange County Regional Consortium for Adult Education (NOCRC) strives to improve and expand adult education in North Orange County. Established in 2014 as a result of California legislation AB 86, NOCRC’s membership includes community colleges, K-12 school districts, county offices of education, and other community partners in the region.
NOCRC serves a population of more than 900,000 adult learners in North Orange County, including English language learners (ELL), those unemployed and/or undereducated, and individuals with disabilities. Collaborating with academic, industry, and community partners, NOCRC identifies and implements strategies to connect underserved individuals with educational opportunities to reach academic, professional, and personal goals, such as mastering the English language, gaining expertise in parenting, accessing high-demand workforce opportunities, or obtaining a high school diploma or GED/HiSET certificate, to name a few.
