Liberty Partnerships Program

Liberty Partnerships

The Liberty Partnerships Program of Jefferson Community College is a student success program funded by a grant from the New York State Department of Education. The program is a partnership between JCC, the Watertown City School district, and multiple community agencies including the YMCA and Cornell Cooperative Extension.

The Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP) is founded on the belief that students will achieve academic success and lead productive lives as adults if they are provided with support, encouragement, information and effective interventions.

The LPP is designed to promote collaboration among post-secondary institutions, community organizations, school districts, businesses and industries, parents, and volunteers. SUNY Jefferson's LPP fosters innovative support programs which help Watertown City School District students achieve their full potential and pursue appropriate post-secondary education or employment.
