North Shore Community College in Massachusetts expands women’s transitional education program

 
The Boston Globe
 
North Shore Community College in Danvers this fall is adding a new service to a women’s transitional education program.

Through a two-year, $6,000 Essex County Community Foundation Grant, the school will train and hire a student mentor for the Women in Transition program, a part-time educational program for women who have been away from college for a long time or who begin college later in life, said Margaret Figgins-Hill, WIT program coordinator. The grant will be shared with a sister program offered at the Lynn campus of the college that focuses on helping women secure employment opportunities.

The transition program for women has been offered at the Danvers campus for over 20 years, said Figgins-Hill, and attracts women from many North Shore communities who oftentimes are facing financial hardship, abuse or addiction. Each year, 24 women participate in the self-contained program that provides emotional support services in addition to liberal arts classes.
