On this segment of Access Houston, KG Smooth welcomes the executive director of Capital IDEA Houston, Michelle Paul. Capital IDEA Houston’s mission is to lift working adults out of poverty and into living wage careers through education. Michelle tells us about the Career My Way: I Choose program at Capital IDEA Houston and let’s us know about The Xperience. The Capital IDEA Houston program is based on a proven, innovative model that provides the financial and emotional support that non-traditional, adult learners need to succeed in higher education and ultimately reach financial self-sufficiency.
Our next conversation is with Shantera Chatman, founder of The Chatman Women’s Foundation. TCWF is an organization of community leaders who come together for the purpose of professional and personal development of women and our society as a whole. Shantera tells us about the PowHer Play 2018 Professional Women’s Breakfast at the Junior League of Houston, hosted by Erica Simon of ABC13.
Thank you for listening!
