Turning Point Brooklyn’s Education Center offers Adult Basic Education (ABE) classes, High School Equivalency (HSE) classes, and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) classes, at almost all skill levels. Over 800 people a year come to us for classes, though we don’t advertise. This is a testament to both Turning Point’s strong reputation, and the need for adult literacy services in Sunset Park.
All students at the Education Center receive individual counseling and advocacy assistance, as well as college access and career readiness counseling. Youth are embraced via Turning Point Brooklyn’s positive youth development model.
The Education center is also an official HSE test site, the only such test site located within a community-based organization in Brooklyn. In 2013, over 2,500 people took the HSE test at our facility.
Students enrolled at the Turning Point Education Center receive the following services, all under one roof:
We are inspired every day by the courage and dedication of our students. Their success
stories are the best testimonials we can offer to those who are wondering if they can
turn their own lives around, and to the generous supporters and community partners
who make this work possible.
