Education Center

Health, crime rate, advancement, and poverty of a community are all impacted by education. At M-POWER, we bridge the gap between functional illiteracy and literacy, as well as offer quality GED preparation classes and Ready to Work training.

At M-POWER, we use an individualized approach to education, ensuring each student receives what he or she personally needs to be successful.
