With this in mind offering educational courses and tutoring in basic reading and writing, with the goal of preparing the students so they would be ready to take a GED test or working on getting a high school diploma. Community

This will be accomplished by talking with the school’s superintendent and the principals regarding how many residents of the area might be in the target population.
