Across the nation, community colleges are serving an increasing number of adults who are trying to learn new skills or return to the workforce. Some of these students offer particular challenges, such as newly released prisoners, older adults and veterans transitioning to civilian life. While each of these nontraditional populations has its own unique challenges, they all can be served more effectively with a coordinated effort that involves wraparound services and extra attention to their specific needs. In this article, the author describes how Bates Technical College (WA), Jefferson State Community College (AL), and Coastline Community College (CA) are preparing nontraditional students for the workforce through creative thinking and attentiveness to their needs.
