The Community College initiative will offer a two-year associate degree course, with a mix of imparting employability skills, job skills and employability development, so that the youth who have been deprived of a college degree can become the part of mainstream educated class and contribute in the country’s socio-economic progress. The program has been so  designed to integrate on-the-job training and academic knowledge in one.

While the program also offers students the choice to join the third year of a regular course and obtain a degree of Graduation, the students who complete this 2 year program will be eligible to apply for employment with HCCB or its business partners for Market Developer Executive/ Sales Executive positions.

This Associate Degree Program will be offered at KG Joshi College of Arts and NG Bedekar College of Commerce, Thane, Rayat Shikshan Sanstha’s Karmaveer Bhaurao Patil College (Modern College), Navi Mumbai, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar College of Arts, Commerce & Science, Mahad & Shri Pancham Khemraj Mahavidyalaya (SPK), Sawant Wadi; affiliated to the University of Mumbai.
