Free “Empower Program” helps adults transition back to school

A free program designed to help adult learners come back to school is being offered through Linn-Benton Community College.

The new program, called “Empower,” is a strength-based, supportive learning program to help adults transition into LBCC and be successful in college.

The program aims to help adult learners realize their potential, develop a network of college and community support, and become empowered in lifelong success in college, professional and personal development.

Program classes are free and 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. and include computer skills, time management, communication skills, critical thinking skills, employment skills, learning styles, how to identify your strengths and more.
