Sarah's Continuing Education Fund for Family Support
Organized by: Sarah Lorenz
My name is Sarah Jo and I am a 31 year old mom and wife who needs some additional training in order to better my job outlook and generate more income for my family. I have been through college and have a BA in English and Psychology. I work from home as a freelance writer and editor. I am the primary source of income for our family and I have been looking at continuing education courses to take so I can get better freelance jobs.
I need some additional training in areas such as Search Engine Optimization, Website Building, Online Sales, Business and Technical Writing, Writing for Grants and Non-Profits, Basic Business Management, Publishing, and similar courses. I have found that I can take these classes from the College of Central Florida from my home city of Ocala, FL. The classes cost just over $100 each plus the cost for materials and supplies.
I know I can get some better jobs because I have seen the job listings on the freelance sites, but I do not quality for many of them because I have no training or experience in areas such as Business, Marketing, White Papers, and so forth. I know with these classes and additional training I can get better paying jobs and provide a better life for my family.
My academic record is strong and I know I can be successful in these classes. I graduated with an AA in English and Communications with a 3.80 GPA and I graduated with my BA with the honor of summa cum laude. I know I can be successful in this venture and i know the training will help me get the skills and additional training I need to land great jobs so I can give my son the life he deserves.
Please help me as i work towards the goal of continuing my education. Our family appreciates any help and support that you can give us!
