Applications are still being accepted for female veterans, service women and military spouses to receive free job training, career and education counseling, job search assistance and other specialized services from Women’s Rights Information Center through Project STARS, a new program funded in part by Women United in Philanthropy.

Computer training classes that enhance job skills and qualifications, and lead to Microsoft Office Specialist Certification, are being offered at Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Hackensack campus in state-of-the-art technology facilities. FDU is a collaborating partner in the project, along with the Bergen County One-Stop Career System and Women Lawyers in Bergen (WLIB).

Military women aiming to earn a college degree to enhance their career and earnings potential can meet with FDU’s Director of Veterans Services, who will explain how the Yellow Ribbon program can pay for a college education and how the faculty can help ease the transition to college life.

Individual career counseling sessions are conducted at the Women’s Center’s Englewood location to provide Project STARS participants with assistance in resume preparation, interviewing, online job search and finding a new or better position. The Center works with a wide range of businesses and organizations, including the Bergen County One Stop, to locate job openings and connect with employers that are hiring.

Additional services are available through Project STARS for help dealing with personal and family issues. For anyone needing legal advice on marital law, child custody rights or child support, a private consultation with an attorney from Women Lawyers in Bergen can be scheduled. For help dealing with other private concerns, support counseling is available through confidential referral to female, non-military specialists.

Enrollment is limited on a first-come first-served basis. To secure space or for more information, call 201-568-1166 or e-mail info@womensrights.org. To learn more about the Center, its programs, services and activities, visit www.womensrights.org. Women’s Rights Information Center, located at 108 West Palisade Avenue in Englewood, is a non-profit, community based organization that has been helping women and their families to become self-sufficient since 1973. Services are provided at low cost or no cost.
