PREP Up in May
In May, ARDC conducted 2 workshops for 12th grade students aimed at preparing them for life after graduation. They learned about personal financial management, how to read a paycheck, and other important skills for college and career readiness. The students were engaged and asked many questions.
ARDC is happy to announce the start of 2 vocational courses for women in collaboration with the Eritrean Women’s Center and Microfy. Hairdressing, in conjunction with business, is being offered at the beginner or advanced levels. These courses will focus on traditional Eritrean hairstyles, and is taught in Tigrinya by 3 professional hairstylists from the Eritrean community. The class combines hairdressing and business to maximize learning in finance and entrepreneurship. The women were very excited and enthusiastic for class.
We also began a 6 week TOEFL course for students who are in process of applying for English speaking university programs.
