The Southbury Public Library is hosting an “Open House” featuring representatives from Foothills Adult and Learning Continuing Education on Tuesday, August 21, 10:00 a.m. to noon in the library’s Brown meeting Room who will answer questions and provide information about the region’s adult and continuing education program. Foothills Adult and Continuing Education is a state and locally funded program serving Southbury, Middlebury, Woodbury and other towns in the area. Participants may attend free classes to complete their high school diploma, improve their English language proficiency, improve basic reading and math skills or prepare for the U.S. Citizenship exam.
Foothills Adult & Continuing Education also offers a wide variety of general interest courses for adults at very reasonable prices. Enrichment classes are held at Pomperaug High School. Classes include computer skills, arts & crafts, world languages, finance and interesting self-improvement classes ranging from meditation techniques to AARP Smart Driver course. In the fall, they are sponsoring excursions to the 9/11 Memorial Museum, Salem, Boston and NYC.
Foothills is interested in recruiting teachers as well. They offer opportunities for people with a talent, skill or interest to teach continuing education courses. Individuals with an active teaching certificate may be interested in part-time teaching positions to help our students prepare for the GED® exam, earn high school credits, study for the U.S. Naturalization exam or learn English at one of our program locations.
The Fall Foothills Adult & Continuing Education program catalog is mailed to homes in mid-August or visit the Foothills web site at http://edadvance.org/adult-learners/foothills-adult-continuing-education. Foothills is a program of EdAdvance, Western Connecticut’s Regional Education Service Center.
