Bridging Gaps in Workforce Development

3fold partners with education and workforce development organizations to create greater social and economic growth in their communities.

the problem

A growing gap between education and workforce development

A traditional approach to jobs and careers isn’t for everyone, and career and trade education is not an obvious choice for many. This disconnect between schools and our workforce is currently reflected in labor shortages in our region and beyond.

the solution

Connecting students with real-world experience for a sustainable career

Pairing students with hands-on, industry-specific experience prepares them for the positions that bolster them and their communities. Our team works with clients to remove the barriers to reaching students and prepare them for success.

“When the Community Colleges in the San Diego & Imperial Region began looking for a new marketing consultant to partner with on our regional Career Education marketing efforts, we were looking for a company who was innovative, responsive to constantly shifting priorities, knowledgeable about the higher education space, and driven by research. When we reviewed 3fold’s proposal, we knew we had found what our campaign needed.”

Los Rios Community College District

Our 2022 – 2023 marketing campaign focused on audiences who felt that they can’t go to school because of competing responsibilities.

The campaign showed that Los Rios celebrates these hard-working people whose responsibilities don’t keep them from getting their education. As a result, Los Rios gained:

  • 5,355 new prospective students
  • Statewide recognition and awards for marketing
  • 74 percent increase of new visitors to the website
  • 6% increase in student enrollment
