RANDOLPH, NJ — The Women’s Center at County College of Morris (CCM) and the Madison Area YMCA announce the first evening offering of this acclaimed 12-week program to help women with developing life-enhancing skills while empowering them in a supportive group environment.

“Empowerment!” is an interactive program with engaging techniques that help promote methods for creating a positive self-concept, a coaching model that offers accountability, and ways to energize personal and professional growth, tap into leadership skills and more. The course is facilitated by its creator, Jeanne Rohach, a Certified Women's Empowerment Coach and Consultant.

An information session will be held on Tuesday, March 29, from 6-8 p.m. at the Madison Area YMCA’s F.M. Kirby Children’s Center, 54 East Street, Madison NJ.
