Making WAVES | Pearl River Community College
February 22, 2023 - - Posted by Women's Foundation Team
The goal of Making WAVES (Women Achieving Victories and Educational Success) at Pearl River Community College, is to recruit and equip non-traditional and economically vulnerable families, from within the six-county service area, by providing two-generation educational programs which afford opportunities that meet the needs of parents and children.
The primary focus of this workforce development project will be to help students in need overcome barriers prior to entering the nursing workforce. Support will be awarded based on need and may provide for wrap-around services in the form of emergency funds for additional coursework expenses, healthcare licensing testing fees (required for securing employment), or mentoring programs.
