Welcome! This is a 5-week blended-learning course—a mix of in-person and virtual meetings. The learning circle will be facilitated by Beatrice and Sherry. This course has been approved for college credit with College Unbound and the facilitators have been trained to facilitate credit-bearing learning circles. Your course facilitators will provide information about the opportunity to earn college credit.
