College of the Redwoods welcomes career insight and involvement from Arcata Chamber members 

College of the Redwoods teachers understand the importance of bringing the real world of careers into their classrooms. If you have career expertise and experience that you are willing to share, CR welcomes Arcata Chamber members to get involved in support of students and faculty. There are many ways that community members and businesses can volunteer to support CR including participating on a career speaker panel in a classroom, hosting a student job shadow, working with the CR Career Center to bring qualified student candidates to your business as interns, and sharing your business expertise as a member of a career-specific, industry advisory group. Whatever your background and expertise, connecting students with community members who can offer real-world insight and experience helps them to better prepare for future job and career success.  To learn more about ways to connect with and support College of the Redwoods students and faculty, please contact CR Director of Employer Partnerships Jim Ritter at
