Beat The Street

Beat the Street program is open to and serves young adults between the ages of 19-29, who experience/experienced barriers in completing their education. This program provides support to the participants to upgrade their skills in reading, writing, math, digital technology, and self-management to access the following pathways:

  • Independence
  • Secondary School Credits
  • Post-Secondary School
  • Employment
  • Apprenticeship

The participant is a part of a team and helps in developing their own learning plan; works at their own learning pace; and participates in an instructor-led class with a maximum of 10 participants. In addition, each participant is supported with a volunteer tutor who works with the participant on a one-to-one learning partnership while in the program.
 
This program also includes Pre-GED (General Education Development) preparation, which helps participants prepare to write the GED exam.
 
This is a FREE program for participants.
