A $5,000 grant from the Pharos Fund will help pay for books, supplies, and other support for the Center for Adult Learning’s High School Equivalency class at the Community Life Center (CLC) at Fullana Learning Center.
The class includes care and activities for the children of the students while they attend class.
The CLC, 220 N. Grant Ave., Fort Collins, is a project of The Matthews House, with child-care funds from the United Way, and Fullana is a public school building owned by the Poudre School District. The Center for Adult Learning is a program of Front Range Community College.
“This is a true collaboration among community partners,” said Margie Wagner, director of the Center for Adult Learning.
Twenty adult learners can enroll in the HSE class; space for children is limited to 16. The Center for Adult Learning also offers English as a Second Language classes at the CLC. For adults who do not need child care, a full spectrum of high school equivalency and English as a second language classes are offered both days and evenings at the FRCC Campus and at 800 S. Taft Ave. in Loveland. Classes will start on Aug. 20 and run through May 3, 2019.
To register, call the Center for Adult Learning at 970-204-8181.
The Pharos Fund is a Bohemian Foundation Community Program whose goals are to encourage and enable youth to thrive, empower individuals and families on the path toward economic stability, and strengthen the Fort Collins community.
