Career Pathways Bridge Academy

The Career Pathways office at the University of Arkansas Community College in Morrilton is seeking individuals to participate in our next Bridge Academy, beginning February 1, 2011.
The Bridge Academy is designed to help low-income parents prepare for the demands of earning a two-year technical degree.  The program offers training to enhance COMPASS test scores, the entrance exam for students at UACCM.  Bridge Academy also provides students with career assessment and opportunities to create an individualized plan for academic and career success.  Career Pathways staff members facilitate learning experiences to enhance job readiness, career search, and interviewing skills.
Students in the program will enhance presentation and computer skills, as well as develop academic progress in mathematics, reading comprehension, and English composition.  Participants will gain ties to the UACCM campus through in-class workshops, led by UACCM faculty and staff members. Planned workshop topics include time management, organization, personal finance, financial aid, and academic preparation.
Parents with children under age 21 and receiving public assistance are encouraged to apply.  The Bridge Program is designed primarily for parents who do not yet meet the minimum requirements for admission to UACCM.  Career Pathways will assist with potential students wishing to earn a GED.  Childcare assistance and fuel cards are available for qualified participants.  To participate in Career Pathways, attendance at an Information Session is required.  The last available session before Bridge Academy is January 20, 2011.
The Spring 2011 Bridge Academy will begin February 1, 2011, and will be taught by Curriculum Coordinator for Career Pathways, Mathew Herrman, with facilitations led by Stephanie Ellis, Director of Career Pathways.  
Please contact Career Pathways at the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton for more information about the Bridge Academy.  The office can be reached at 501-977-2188, or by emailing herrman@uaccm.edu.
