Description

Do you work with students who struggle finding ways to buy food, pay for housing, transportation or child care? NOVA students struggle due to financial hardship. Last year, 39% didn't have enough money for food, 38% had trouble paying rent, 49% had to borrow money from friends, and 15% experienced homelessness. We've all seen how our students' financial stability can have a direct impact on their academic success.

Learn how to better help the students you serve and join us for one or all of our workshops this semester. Hosted at the Brault Building on the Annandale campus, but all employees are invited to attend. WebEx call-in option available, but will be audio only. Find details below.
