Technology for the Workforce (Early Afternoon)

Free

with Vanessa Richards

Calendar Jan 24, 2024 at 12:30 pm

If you need to up your game in the technology department to improve work options, these sessions are just for you!

If you are interested in improving your career options, there are many offerings in our program that can assist you in reaching your goals. This option will get you on the road to building your skills and confidence for success.  You will work with a veteran instructor to design your own individualized program.  This is an in-person class.

Vanessa loves working with adult learners. She is really easy to be around and makes people extremely comfortable; she even makes learning math and computers fun! She is committed to helping adults discover their strengths, build their confidence, and realize they can accomplish their goals. In her free time, she loves to travel and explore the outdoors. Vanessa teaches math, science, technology, and provides college and career advising.
