CLEVELAND — The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly put a strain on medical facilities, frontline healthcare workers and the economy as well as families and their everyday lives. However, over the last couple months there have been countless examples of some good happening in the world amid the coronavirus crisis. Add Tri-C and its summer plans to the list of good.
On Monday, Cuyahoga Community College announced that this upcoming summer it plans to expand community access to education and job training during the COVID-19 outbreak.
In a statement the College announced the course is designed to sharpen skills necessary to succeed in the workplace while providing an introduction to the College and its resources. It is part of the ongoing Tri-C Access Center initiative.
The online seminar begins June 8 and runs through the first week of August. Participants will:
- Earn college credit
- Identify and boost employable skills
- Get help with career planning, resumé writing and job searching
- Improve study, time management and problem-solving skills
Instruction materials will be available online for self-paced review, with morning and evening sessions with the instructor to go over lessons at designated times during the week.
The seminar is open to the community. Visit tri-c.edu/accesscenters to register or learn more.
The course is offered in partnership with Tri-C Access Center hosts, including Esperanza Inc.; The MetroHealth System; and Olivet Housing and Community Development Corp. (OHCDC), an arm of Olivet Institutional Baptist Church.
Tri-C Access Centers debuted in 2019 to bring education and job training to neighborhoods gripped by poverty. The sites open doors to opportunity by bringing the college experience into the community.
