Women in Transition

We believe that it is through higher education and/or re-training, that possibilities are endless. Our non-credit eight-week session is designed to take the particiapant  through a period of transformation and empower them to move life-forward through education and training. Our curriculum is based on Personal Development, Career Exploration, Computer Class, and Workshops.
