First Literacy Grant Funded Project
Partner Program: Charlestown Adult Education

Project Description: This project is a comprehensive re-entry program for recently incarcerated and court-involved/at risk youth (ages 16 – 30) who need a HiSET/GED certification or to improve language proficiency. These individuals are in desperate need of educational opportunities and resources to help them adjust to life outside of prison, prepare for next steps, and reduce the chance of becoming part of the alarming 40% recidivism rate in Massachusetts. Funds will allow continued employment of a youth case manager to coordinate and individualize resources for students so that they may succeed in their educational and employment goals.
