A free program designed to help adult learners go back to school is being offered through Linn-Benton Community College starting June 27.
The Empower Program is a strength-based, supportive learning program designed to help with transitioning into LBCC and being successful in college.
Participants learn to increase their ability to succeed, realize potential, develop a network of college and community support, and become empowered in lifelong success in college, professional and personal development.
Empower classes are free, with a focus on college and career readiness, self-development, self-assessment, goal-setting and planning, support network development, and overall well-being.
Classes meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. starting June 27 through August 31. Classes cover computer skills, time management, communication skills, critical thinking skills, employment skills, learning styles, how to identify your strengths and more.
