Program Overview

This is a class for adults with skill levels 0 - 5th grade. We work with the students to help become more self-sufficient. The atmosphere is positive and 'safe'. We have a strong partnership with the local technical college. Some students who come to this program just need a little extra help prior to attending GED classes regularly. Our class is open to anyone over 18 who is serious about learning. In addition to a teacher, we have 14 regular mentors who work with students in small groups. Groups are formed based on literacy levels.
