“Sierra ASSETS”

Our consortium has been working very diligently to build services in our region. Our new logo  “Sierra ASSETS” reflects our work and purpose in the acronym – Adult Student Support, Education, and Training Services. We are excited to share the news that we have launched a new adult education program in Truckee. This is a location that has never had adult education. We know this will fill a much needed role in that area to support of adults learning English and getting their high school equivalency certificates. We believe the need is large and we can continue to grow the program. We also see that our connections with partners is leading to new and greater effectiveness and more services for adults. Our Business Office Professional Certificate program is becoming the “training of choice” for many or our agency partners as they refer their clients to adult supportive services leading to job placements. We have several other plans in the queue and anticipate the launch of new services and classes with each new semester. Stay tuned!!
