SRQ DAILY MONDAY BUSINESS EDITION MONDAY FEB 10, 2020

The Women’s Resource Center (WRC) is partnering with Suncoast Technical College (STC) to offer individuals free assistance with completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and other scholarship applications, and to learn about the high-demand training programs available at STC’s North Port campus. WRC is hosting this free information session on Wednesday, February 19, 1-3 pm, at the Shannon Staub Public Library, located on the campus of Suncoast Technical College, 4675 Career Lane, North Port. The workshop is part of WRC’s newly launched Career Connections monthly program, which helps individuals learn about quality job openings and funded training in the area. No registration is required. “Millions of education dollars, such as Pell Grants, go untapped each year because people don’t realize funds are available for adults interested in pursuing a college degree or technical certification. Our goal is to help connect women to these funding sources and to credentials that will help them earn family sustaining wages,” explains WRC CEO Ashley Brown. In this workshop, participants will learn about educational resources, including WRC’s scholarship program, and receive information about STC North Port’s short-term programs in highly sought-after professions, including accounting operations, business management, practical nursing (LPN), and emergency medical technician (EMT). STC also offers classes in GED preparation and English language acquisition. WRC also offers free resume writing support, career mentors, job seeker support groups and professional women’s clothing.
