Tallahassee Community College Workforce Development is offering summer program opportunities for young people ages 12 and up. For families who are changing summer plans due to social distancing, TCC is providing the perfect solution by allowing people to create their own summer camps.
“We understand the frustration felt by young people – and their guardians – when face-to-face camps were cancelled. We encourage them to find a subject that truly sparks their imagination,” said Sonia James, Program Coordinator for Workforce Development Online.
Participants have many options to choose from including learning the Microsoft Office suite, Introduction to Photoshop, SAT/ACT Preparation, Blogging and Podcasts for Beginners or even learning a new language. There’s an option to mix and match courses since there’s plenty to pick from.
The summer camp classes provide attendees with expert instructors, 24-hour access to classes and discussion areas during a 6-week format in the comfort of their homes. “We wanted to ensure that even in this current environment that we met our community where they were,” said Kimberly A. Moore VP for Workforce Innovation and TCC2WORK. “The virtual summer camps are especially convenient for families who are working from home and seeking ways to stimulate their children’s educational growth while balancing their work.”
