NEXT Success works to recover 16-24 year old students who have left high school by offering two educational paths. The first is earning a GED, and the second is recovering high school credits to graduate. PAX Learning Center had has placed tutors and teachers into their program, tutoring and teaching students, preparing them to take the GED.
Living Hope Church has been gracious enough to donate classroom space for PAX to conduct GED classes. Living Hope provides addiction recovery classes, clothes and food to local homeless. They saw the need for education. PAX is providing that missing piece
PAX took on a new challenge and partnered with Family Promise of Clark County. Homeless are housed by 15 churches. Family Promise and PAX joined together to provide tutor support and mentorship for the K-12 students of the families. 25 students were served this year and all went from failing to passing. .
In the year of Covid-19, PAX established an online tutoring and virtual classroom system. During the year that was COVID, PAX saw, 1,900 hours of tutor/student engagement, and 1000 hours of student engagement with our online learning system. All free of charge!
This year, PAX is partnering with SW Washington's Give More 24 program. On September 23, you will be able to donate either a personal donation, or contribute a matching grant. By doing so, you will be putting textbooks, calculators and other material into our classrooms.
We hope to be opening a free GED class on the west side of Vancouver in the near future. Stay tuned!
