Pirate Soup

What is VC Pirate Soup?

VC Pirate Soup is a television series, which highlights Career & Technical Education (CTE) programs at Ventura College. Each installment features a different CTE program and how it positively impacts students in the community as they progress towards college and career. Ventura College is working to share the important message of the value of CTE and we encourage the viewers to join us in our mission to prepare all students for college and career. Our first video underscores CTE’s achievements in Water Science, an emerging industry and to show students as early as middle school, the steps needed to start their career paths.
