Manassas Global Learning Partners With Faith Community

Manassas Global Learning Partners with Faith Community
Attendees listen intently to Alisha Abraham, Prince William County Department of Economic Development research manager, as she discusses significant demographic changes occurring throughout the county.

Provost Roger Ramsammy convened faith leaders from various denominations to partner with the College in identifying and addressing the educational, economic, cultural and workforce needs specific to the rapidly increasing culturally and linguistically diverse residents of Prince William County and the City of Manassas.

Ramsammy and the faith leaders identified and discussed a variety of concerns, including the education and training needs of Hispanic day laborers, the growing population of young adults who leave high school prior to earning a diploma, the need to establish an educational pipeline for ex-offenders and Hispanic and African American males in correctional facilities, adults under-skilled for today’s workforce and a growing number of immigrants who need to develop English proficiency.

Through its community-based Global Learning Center located in the Manassas Mall, the Manassas Campus will collaborate with the faith community to provide access and support to residents who want to develop knowledge and skills that will improve their lives and strengthen their communities.
