A Detroit area Arab social services agency is working with a community college to offer and bring a college preparatory class to low-income, immigrant residents.

The for-credit class is offered by Henry Ford Community College and the Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services, known as ACCESS.

The preparatory course will be offered at the ACCESS Youth & Family Center in Dearborn.

ACCESS says the course aims to help students transition into and through community college. The idea behind the program is to “bring the college to the community” to ensure participation and success.

The class is open to high school seniors and adults between 21 and 24 living in south Dearborn and southwest Detroit. It runs from Sept. 21 through Dec. 17.
