Concepts of the Women's Re-Entry Educational Program. Continuing Education Programs for Women: Educational Growth and Personal Development, De Anza Community College.
The Women's Re-entry Education Program (WREP) at De Anza Community College is an attempt to give women who are educationally deprived the opportunity to gain skills that will enable them to function in, and contribute to, the economic mainstream of America. The primary objectives of WREP are to help students: (1) believe in their ability to gain self-confidence and competencies for acquiring saleable skills, (2) gain parent-child growth and development skills, and (3) conceive self and others as co-builders of their communities. Students accepted into this program come from low income families, minority backgrounds, women heads of households, middle income families with no high school diploma, and middle income families with previous college experience. To attain these objectives it was necessary to provide counseling, special orientation classes, peer counseling, tutoring, a faculty who related to and respected the student and a Child Development Center. A course outline is also included. (BP)
