Several of our corps offer community education programs. For more information on a specific program, contact the appropriate corps.
Tucson Amphi GED Program
A demographics program brought to light a great disparity in the neighborhood of the Tucson Amphi Corps and the schools they serve between income, crime, unemployment, and the levels of education that most people in the area possess. As a result, the GED program was launched, utilizing funds from the T.L. Williams grant.
Adults are offered the opportunity to pre-test, study, and practice test for their GED. After satisfactorily completing the prerequisites, they are able to take the test free of charge through a partnership with Pima Community College. There are currently 375 adult students enrolled, and the corps is hoping to graduate 10% by the end of 2010.
