Lifetime.Education tutoring at The Gathering Place

Lifetime.Education volunteers, intern, and staff met today with staff and members from The Gathering Place – a Clubhouse-style facility in Redford, Michigan. Gathering Place members and staff have already completed their training with Lifetime.Education and are ready to get started!

In the next few weeks, students will be assessed, assigned, and begin working with their personal tutors. We’re excited to be a part of another Clubhouse and delighted that The Gathering Place has chosen to participate in our program and welcome us into their program.

We know we’re going to do some incredible work together!

Citizenship Classes at CVC (Crime Victim Care)

As many of you know, Lifetime.Education has a wonderful English as a Second Language (ESL) program with Crime Victim Care of Allen County – an agency that serves victims of domestic violence, with an emphasis on immigrant populations.

We are pleased to announce that, in addition to expanding our ESL program, we will begin to offer tutoring in Citizenship for individuals who want to become naturalized citiizens of the United States.

All of this is made possible by you, our community of wonderful volunteers. We thank you so very much for all that you do!
