Graphic of return on investment for adult full-time studentsHow does Great Oaks benefit the community?

In fall, 2017, the UC Economics Center completed a study of Great Oaks' economic impact on the community, and the return on investment for adults taking full-time training programs.

The study found that Great Oaks benefits the region by $115,000,000 each year.  Adults who complete a full-time (typically 11-month) program can increase their earning power enough to repay the cost of tuition and lost wages (due to time in class) almost three times within the first five years.
