Our TCC Wakulla Center

The Wakulla Center is known as one of TCC’s “Two Gateways in Wakulla County.” Wakulla County has been part of TCC’s service district since 1966. The first service center opened in 2006 and eventually led to the new Wakulla Environmental Institute (WEI). TCC’s Division of Workforce established a broader workforce-focused service center model in April 2016. The two facilities are located about three miles apart.
