The program will run February to April 2023. Coursework is approximately 3 hours a week: 2 hours asynchronously, and one hour Monday evenings. All coursework is virtual, and course descriptions are listed below.
Priority selection will be given to individuals who:
- are between 17 to 25 years of age
- are serving or recently served as an AmeriCorps member in the state of Texas
- reflect the race and/or income of communities being served
Selected individuals will receive a scholarship to cover the full cost of the certificate program. Technology scholarships may also be available to ensure access to technology is not a barrier to participating.
