Do I have to attend a certain community college?
No! You can be a student at any community college to apply.
What is the time commitment?
We ask participants to participate in 6-7 one hour meetings throughout the academic year. Typically this breaks down to about an hour a month. Meeting times are flexible and based on student availability. All other offerings are encouraged but not required.
Do I have to attend any in-person meetings?
No! Our program is fully online. This allows for connection with mentors and peers around the United States while also lessening the time commitment for students.
Why should I worry about professional development now?
The earlier you start thinking about professional development (ie. resume writing, presentation skills etc.) the easier it will be when you begin job searching after graduation. Growing these skills is also helpful if you are interested in transferring to a 4 year university.
What will I gain from participating in this program?
Encouragement: Build up your personal and professional confidence so you can take on new challenges.
Opportunity: Gain access to professional opportunities through our large network and our "EWAAB-only" project/internship offerings.
