  • Earn a high school diploma or high school equivalency,
  • Develop and strengthen English reading, writing and speaking skills,
  • Become more knowledgeable about effective parenting
  • Earn a Certificate in a Career Training Program and get a job!
  • Improve computer skills
  • Pursue a personal interest in the arts, crafts, personal finance, cooking, etc.
