ADULT EDUCATION AND LITERACY PROGRAM
ESL Teaching and Instructions: The International Organization for Education offers English as a Second Language Teaching and Instructions in partnership with the Literacy New York of the Greater Capital Region. This free educational program include: reading, writing, and English language learning (ELL). This program is currently offered in Albany, New York through one-on-one tutoring and classroom group conversations. The purpose of this program is to help immigrants transition and understand the American system; also to help them in preparation for their citizenship test and job search.
Parenting, Financial, and Computer Education: Many families across the United States face serious challenges, ranging from poverty, crime, unemployment, to low educational attainment. For example, students who attend Albany High School have one of the highest child poverty rates in the State of New York. One major problem we can point out in these neighborhoods is the extremely high rate of crime, which is not farfetched from the fact that many of the kids are raised in single family homes.
Our Parenting, financial, and computer education program for parents is not designed to directly create economic opportunities that will eliminate poverty. However, these programs can provide families with the tools required to escape poverty. They provide parents and other adults opportunities to obtain quality academic training, financial management skills, computer skills, as well as new life and language skills.
