Project ACCESS (Advancing Child Care Education and Student Success) provides training, career, and other support services for non-native speakers of English who want to enter and advance in the Early Childhood Education field. Training is provided in English-language competency to meet language requirements for a career in early childhood education (ECE) through 1) vocational precollege “bridge” classes in English as a Second Language (ESL), 2) classes that link ESL and core early childhood education, and 3) tutorial classes to assist students who are taking regular ECE and general education classes at Diablo Valley College or Contra Costa College. Project ACCESS staff will help students define their career goals and look for a job.
