GLENWOOD, Ill. (May 23, 2018) – Calvary Baptist Church of Glenwood is partnering with South Suburban College (South Holland) and Prairie State College (Chicago Heights) to hold an event designed to provide south suburban residents with information about resources and education opportunities that can help people launch a new career. The event will be held at Calvary Baptist Church—located at 801 East Glenwood-Dyer Road in Glenwood—on Saturday, June 9, from 9:00am–noon.

“There are many people in the south suburbs looking for new and better career opportunities, and we are excited to partner with our local community colleges and share the many resources available to our community members,” said Pastor Kelon Duke, host of the program. “This event is an important place to begin that process.”

The half-day program will provide information on career certificate programs in various professions, apprenticeship and internship programs, business development opportunities, support for veterans, tuition assistance, childcare resources, job placement assistance, and more. Guidance in attaining associate degrees, educational grants, financial aid, and High School Equivalency (HSE) courses also will be offered.

“This truly is a golden opportunity for people to begin improving the quality of their lives by preparing for the kind of purposeful, fulfilling career and future they have always wanted,” Pastor Duke continued. “If even a handful of people take advantage of this resource, we can consider the effort a huge success.”
