A Two-Generation Opportunity for Parents and Children
16 credit hours
The Family Futures Downeast program uses a two-generation approach that supports parents in finding pathways out of poverty through education and access to meaningful careers while also supporting school readiness and healthy development for their children. In recognition of the many potential barriers that families in poverty face, FFD coaches will work with each family to ensure those barriers are overcome.
While parents attend evening classes, their children simultaneously engage in safe, effective learning environments in Head Start centers located on campus. There is no cost for childcare to families enrolled in FFD. To be eligible for the program, at least one child in the family must be under 8 years old.
Every year, up to sixteen parents and their families will be accepted to participate in FFD at WCCC. To apply, please contact Marsha Sloan, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 255-0983.
