DMACC teamed up with the Des Moines Public Schools to
host a Multicultural event April 20th, 2019. The purpose of the
event was to increase awareness of post-secondary education to the different
cultural communities in Des Moines. Seventy-five people attended this event and
learned about the many educational opportunities at DMACC such as English
Language Learners (ELL), High School Equivalency Diploma (HISED), Workforce
Training Academy (WTA) and Transfer and Career Programs. Each of these programs
can be the start to a rewarding career.
A panel of DMACC students shared how their DMACC
experiences has lead them to rewarding careers. Local employers also shared the
many ways a DMACC education can lead to employment within their organizations.
