Last fall we noticed that many of our GED teen moms who moved on to college or vocational school were dropping out — and not because they weren’t motivated! They were unable to stay in school because they just needed a little support in terms of computer and printer access, tutoring, and advising.
Therefore we piloted a new program called Learning Lab, modeled after our highly successful GED Program. We are excited to announce that the pilot was a success and our Learning Lab is now fully operational and staffed with a part-time instructor and numerous volunteer tutors.
We are excited to see how this new program will help even more teen moms reach self-sufficiency this year!
