Kids Eating

There is a place where people wake up hungry in the morning and go to bed hungry at night. These people are our neighbors. The place they live is called Trenton.

Moving Forward Together

Congratulations Students!

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014, will always be an indelibly marked in the lives of seventeen Adult Education Program (AEP) students who were honored at TASK’s Annual Graduate Celebration Dinner.

On that night, TASK’s dining room transformed into a beautiful banquet hall featuring covered tables set with fall flower arrangements, a buffet including hor’duerves and prime rib, and local dignitaries from the Trenton area.

For the third consecutive year, graduate students invited family members and close friends to join them in celebration of receiving their GED (high school equivalency) through TASK’s AEP. Of the seventeen graduates, four have found employment, four will continue their studies taking college level courses and another two have entered job training programs. For some of our students, they are the first in their family to receive a diploma.

Moving Forward Together

“Going back to school as an adult is not easy; 1 out of every 3 high school graduates would not pass the GED test,” explains Kelly Hansen, AEP Coordinator. “It takes a lot of hard work, self‐motivation, and dedication to accomplish this goal and all of our students deserve praise for their perseverance and commitment to reaching their personal goals.”

TASK’s AEP was created to catch individuals who have fallen through cracks in the standard school system and to address employment barriers. What started out as a grassroots literacy program has grown significantly. Today, AEP provides daily one‐on‐one tutoring for approximately 95 students in literacy, math, GED preparation, and computer skills.

As New Jersey testing expectations increase and new technology is introduced, it is becoming more challenging for students who have dropped out of school to earn their GED. However, TASK’s AEP has remained proactive by adding more student workshops, training in computer operating systems, and test preparation services. To date, through our program hundreds of students have obtained their GED, improved reading and math skills, entered training programs.
