Workplace

Providing programs for both employers and employees, The Learning Center helps build job security, job safety, job performance and product quality. When employees lack basic reading and writing skills both workers and companies pay the price.

Nearly 75% of America’s unemployed have trouble reading and writing, a fact that limits their ability to be self-supporting and weakens the quality of the applicant pool available to local businesses.

For job hunters or employed persons The Learning Center offers workplace essential skills, individual tutoring, group classes and prep classes for admission tests for the armed forces, Penn College and more.

Quote to remember

“I want to be someone other than a waitress or work in a grocery store. I want to work with computers and in a job that will give me a chance to give the very best to my son.”
