Our educational training for GED preparation and college preparation is provided by qualified individuals who may have had their own issues with alcohol or drug abuse in the past.
As an example, D. Thom, co-founder of Academic Social Innovation, is a dedicated professional with a doctoral degree in education. In the past, he has had his own issues with alcohol and drug abuse. However, he now has 28 years clean and sober.
In the past five years of service to our community, we have been able to help students receive either their GEDs or college preparartion and get into college. Although education is considered to be open access to all students, in reality, unless they have a GED or score on entrance examination above the cut-off score, they will not recieve financial aid, which prohibits their entry into college. With a 70% rate of completion for a very challenging student body, these students would not have been able to get into college or receive their degree without this educational support.
