If you get a chance, take free SVC transition class | Letter


We have just completed the Life Transition Program at Skagit Valley College Oak Harbor — what an amazing experience.

We would love to give our instructor, Kelly Jolly, a big thank you for all of her hard work.

The Life Transition Program is a free course currently offered by the college twice a year.

This course is for anyone going through or wanting to make a life change. It teaches people how to address barriers that are holding them back.

The course helps those who are looking to start or change their career by providing information about possible career paths.

Jolly helps each student discover the types of work he or she is suited for. Class time is spent showing students how to strengthen their skills to represent themselves as a perfect candidate to an employer.

The class renews self-confidence and will increase your communication and decision making skills.

We are coming out of the class feeling stronger and more determined than ever to conquer the world all by ourselves.

We strongly recommend this program to anyone wanting or needing to make a change in his or her life.

The members of the class have become life-long friends as we have shared our deepest fears and worries with each other.

Jolly does an amazing job teaching this class. She is compassionate, loving and caring. She helped us understand why we were making certain choices and how to make better choices in the future.

Jolly has also become a life- long friend that we will always be thankful for.

If you or someone you know is going through a time in their life where a change is needed, the Life Transition Program is your answer. We are all so glad we took the initiative to take this class.

Again, thank you Kelly Jolly for giving us our self-confidence and, in some ways, our lives back.

We love you.
