POWER Graduating Class 2017

Determination today leads to success tomorrow!

About The Program

Our Support For Self Determination\POWER Program is a comprehensive, twenty-six week professional home day care training program. The goal of the program is to assist participants in acquiring the skills and licenses which will enable them to support themselves by operating their own business or working in the area of childcare. Classes focus on Connecticut business laws, licensing laws, customer relations, and child development and safety.

The program, which is conducted entirely in Spanish, runs from September through May. Classes are held twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6pm-9pm at Waterbury Youth Services. Onsite childcare is provided. A graduation ceremony is held at the end of the 26 weeks and contact is maintained afterwards through an alumni network and additional trainings.
