Workshops offered in Bonners Ferry and Sandpoint to assist adults in enrolling in college

Have you ever thought about attending college, but didn't know where to start?

The Educational Opportunity Center of Northern Idaho (EOC) is offering “Dare to Dream” workshops in Bonners Ferry and Sandpoint to help make dreams come true for dozens of North Idaho adults interested in enrolling in college.

The workshops will include information on various career choices, academic and admissions assistance, financial aid information and referrals to community resources, such as child care and other services.

“A dream without action is empty and action without a dream is directionless,” said EOC Director John Sarchio. “But a dream with action equals results. We want to show people that it is possible to make their dreams come true no matter what their age, educational background or current circumstance.”

The workshops will be from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 24 at the University of Idaho Extension Office in Bonners Ferry and from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 1 at the NIC Sandpoint Center, located at 101 N. Second St. in Sandpoint.

EOC is a federally-funded program through NIC focused on assisting adult residents of Idaho's five northern counties in enrolling in postsecondary education.

The workshops are free and participants are encouraged to call in advance to reserve a seat.
