Queensborough Community College has been awarded technical assistance and coaching from College and Community Fellowships' (CCF) national, THRIVE technical assistance program, sponsored by The John Jay Institute for Justice and Opportunity. THRIVE is a series of workshop trainings funded by John Jay’s Institute for Justice and Opportunity in collaboration with the College and Community Fellowship, and presented by Thrive Technical Assistance Program.
