From GED programs to English as a Second Language (ESL) to computer skills training, we offer a variety of individualized and small group instruction for adults—all designed to help our clients excel in life.
Gainful employment is a core element of a healthy home and a feeling of accomplishment. We offer several programs to assist our clients in finding rewarding employment to support themselves and their families.
Through our partnership with Charleston County First Steps, we offer a free early childhood program for our clients who have children between the ages of 18 months and 4 years old. Getting children ready for a lifetime of success.
Parents or guardians are their children’s first teachers and family literacy allows parents and children to learn and grow together. Family literacy is offered to all of our clients who have a child enrolled in our early childhood program.
