HOUSTON, Texas – September 2, 2015.

Gulf Coast Community Services Association, Inc.and Houston Community College have teamed up to form a partnership that has the potential for changing the lives of some determined members of the Harris County community.
School-aged children aren’t the only ones who will be enjoying a new school year this fall. Starting on Tuesday, September 14, 2015, a new career training program will begin in the Community Learning Center at the GCCSA corporate office. This 14-week HCC Certified Training Program will focus on preparing students for a General Office Support Specialist position qualified to work with just about any employer. General Office Support Specialists perform a wide variety of responsible office support and administrative functions, requiring computer proficiency and customer service skills.

How do you qualify for the program?  This pilot program will first be offered to GCCSA Head Start and Early Head Start Parents. Along with being a parent of a child enrolled in one of our Head Start/ Early Head Start Centers, you must also:

  • Have a High School Diploma, GED or are currently seeking a GED;
  • Be a resident of Harris County;
