Quality Training and Culturally Sensitive Support


To fill a gap in services and workforce development opportunities for returning citizens,  assisting them in removing barriers to education and employment. To do this we must  work collaboratively with students toward completion of our program and  their success.


 Since 2015 we have assisted over 100 students to fulfill their potential through case management, training and job placement assistance. We do this through personalized instruction, while working closely with the classroom teachers and peer to peer support. We foster learning in an environment conducive to retention and skills gain. We also provide onsite supportive services.
