DSC_5497All participants are actively encouraged to obtain a high school level education and learn how to communicate in English. Without basic educational credentials their ability to support themselves legally and safely is very limited. Volunteers and staff help with homework, test preparation, and ESL coursework. We partner with the Career Center, North Shore Community College, and high schools to ensure our participants are fast-tracked for enrollment and are accessing all of the financial aid available to them. We have now added an on-line, in house education program which allows students to prepare for GED tests and make progress on high school online courses. Clients can access these programs in house or on their own personal devices at any time.
