Educational

Educational attainment is the leading indicator of financial sufficiency. The City of Whitehall has one of the highest concentrations of TANF eligible residents due to the high number of citizens who only possess a high school diploma or less (65%).  To address this issue, RESTORE Whitehall devotes its resources to assist our neighbors overcome barriers to educational attainment.  Our support will consist of the following:

  • Encouraging adult learners to re-enter the educational arena to earn High School Diplomas or GEDs
  • Encouraging adult learners to purse postsecondary educational and vocational opportunities
  • Mentoring to encourage high and middle school students to stay in school and reach their academic potential, to explore challenging career pathways
  • Investing high quality early education tutoring support for young learners to gain a proper foundation in reading and mathematics
