PROJECT OVERVIEW

Learning after secondary school as a mature aged student allows adults to develop valuable skills to improve career prospects and expand their professional knowledge. Developing literacy and numeracy skills in adulthood also gives individuals a better ability to reach their full potential. Individual students work with tutors to set their goals which may include GED assistance, Math skills, Reading improvement, or any identified goal.
