Tim Aldinger is Executive Director of Workforce Development at the Foundation for California Community Colleges.   Work-based learning was a central part of Aldinger’s educational and career path and he has committed nearly twenty years of his career to making such programming available to all learners.  He’s grateful to do that work with a talented team of colleagues who support this vision across California.  Aldinger has been adjunct faculty in Sacramento State’s Workforce Development Professional Certificate and Apprenticeship Program, and is a co-founder and facilitator of the California Workforce Association’s Executive Bootcamp.

During Aldinger’s nine years at the Foundation he has played a leadership role in expanding and diversifying work-based learning opportunities through Career Catalyst and other key initiatives, placing more than 5,000 learners annually in short-term, part-time, summer, and full-time employment.  He and the team have worked with multiple agencies through technical assistance and managing public funding.  Most recently Aldinger was thrilled to pull together the partners and the concept of the California Resilient Careers in Forestry that was awarded a Good Jobs Challenge grant and help further the Foundation’s climate resilience and adaptation work across the state.

Aldinger was a member of the Regional Ecosystem Applied Learning (REAL) Corps providing urban/wildland forestry treatments. He was a Coro Fellow in Public Affairs, including 7 paid work-based learning placements over the course of nine months.  Aldinger earned his bachelor of arts in international studies from Southern Oregon University and his master of public management from Carnegie Mellon University.
