Harper College will host a pair of informational sessions this month at its newly renovated Prospect Heights facility.

The Learning and Career Center will debut new programs addressing unemployment in the Prospect Heights-Wheeling area.

"The idea is to achieve your dreams in your neighborhood," said Kenya Ayers, dean of academic enrichment. "We're working to meet the community's needs and break down barriers to higher education and better jobs."

The informational sessions will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, July 22, and 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday, July 26. The facility is at 1375 Wolf Road.

This fall, the center will house more skill certificate and career credential programs. The branch also offers free prep classes in English as a Second Language, GED and citizenship, among others.
