Beginning in 2004, Dalit Solidarity opened a community college to provide vocational training for qualified high school graduates. Programs in Preschool Teacher Training and Automotive Mechanics are offered at our St. Patrick's campus. Another program in Nurses Aid Training is available at St. Mary's Health Center. In 2006, a new training center was opened in the town of Kodaikanal in the Dindigul District. At the Kodaikanal facility, courses of study are available in computers and tailoring.
For the academic year ending in June 2006, 90% percent of our graduates obtained employment within six months of graduation.
All students in the community college program pay a tuition fee. Students who choose to live at their respective facilities, pay a fee for room and board.
