Program Overview

Since 1995, more than 500 adults have participated in the DCW Adult Education Program. We partner with the Milwaukee Area Technical College for this program. Personal commitment is the only requirement for participation in the Education Program. An individual education program is developed for each student. Tutors work on a one-on-one basis or in small groups with students to achieve their individual educational goals. Tutors help prepare students for their GED/HSED tests or hone their reading, math, technology and computer skills as they seek entry into post secondary education, training programs and meaningful employment. In the past year, DCW witnessed a dramatic increase in students most of whom are between the ages of 18-36. There are currently 92 students registered for the programs. This is in contrast to a statewide 92% drop in GED successful candidates and reports from other Milwaukee literacy centers who witnessed significant drops in classroom attendance. We assist students in getting their GED Site ID.
