Our ABE program helps adults (men and women aged 16 and older) learn how to read and write proficiently. Our volunteer tutors work one-on-one with students to help them achieve their literacy goals. This program privileges functional over academic literacy. Outcomes may be holistic (improving general reading skills; building vocabulary) or more specific (obtaining a driver license, registering to vote, filling out a job application, understanding instructions on an Rx).
Our GED program prepares students to pass the General Equivalency Exam. Students receive instruction and academic support one-on-one and in small groups. All students are evaluated upon registration, and volunteer tutors develop individualized learning plans that meet students where they are.
