(Delaware and Chester Counties, PA)—Spend your summer seeking personal enlightenment or enrichment by taking one of Delaware County Community College’s non-credit courses. A wide variety of courses will be offered at the College’s Marple Campus (901 S. Media Line Road, Media, PA) from May to mid-August.

Find out what it takes to prepare a successful proposal for funding, and learn the requirements of private foundations, public agencies and other funding sources in Grant Writing and Research (5/30), or explore legal issues, market research, management, accounting, insurance and site selection in How to Start a Small Business (5/22).

Launch a career in Life Coaching (5/23), helping others discover their strengths, set goals and achieve them. Or consider the field of bartending and learn recipes, preparation of drinks and bar setups for restaurant, home and catering applications in Introduction to Mixology (7/9).
