BoogieDowner Do-Gooder

Daily News' Clem Richardson filed a report yesterday highlighting an inspirational program at Bronx Community College for women who have lost their jobs or weren't able to enter the workforce for various reasons. The Displaced Homemaker's Program has been in existence for 26 years and is run by BCC's director of adult education and training program, Blanche Kellawon (pictured right in blue).

Ms. Kellawon not only preps women for the workforce by providing services such as computer training and resume and cover letter writing, but she also teaches students how to do market research to determine what career paths will be most profitable.

For more information about these programs, call (718) 289-5858, or (718) 289-5827.
