In 2014, New Century Careers was surprised to receive a call from the White House. They heard about NCC's work and requested program materials. After a series of calls with the Offices of the President and Vice President, an advance team followed up on Paul Anselmo's leads for a possible venue to visit and announce a $100 million competition for American Apprenticeship grants.
NCC's Training Innovation Center was not large enough, so CCAC West Hills hosted the visit. The college pulled out all the stops to make their facility ideal for the rare visit by both the President and Vice President together. NCC was honored to manage the invitation list and fill the site with staff, students, friends and supporters.
"I can still remember the cheers that filled the room when President Obama complimented the work of New Century Careers." - Paul Anselmo, NCC President and CEO.
