Education and Employment Services

Student_TS_77005452MSC’s Education Programs offer resources and support, customized to the individual, in small-sized classes and one-on-one tutoring. Many students tell us that our supportive and encouraging instructors made all the difference in helping them to succeed and reach their goals. Instruction is free. If you are ready to further your education, we are ready to help you. We have programs in adult basic education, English as a second language, and GED preparation.

MSC’s Employment Programs RISE and THRIVE help individuals struggling with homelessness and other barriers find employment. Through training, case management, and individualized employment plans, individuals work toward finding living-wage jobs that increase stability.

MSC also offers programs specifically for youth who may be struggling to finish school and/or find employment.
