Nine community approaches represent the following types: community college, community college skill center, secondary school, state system, comprehensive adult education, area vocational-technical school, technical institute, correctional services, and community-based organization network. Three skill clinics based in the workplace and tailored specifically to meet employee needs are partnerships between a business and an educational organization. The last skill clinic described is a federal sector design located in the Office of Personnel Management/Internal Revenue Service.
