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. TCC’s Division of Workforce established the Wakulla Environmental Institute (WEI) and a broader workforce-focused service center model. The two facilities are located about three miles apart.
