On September 20th, Herbert Hodge testified at the NYC Council Committee on Education’s hearing on Adult Education and Literacy programs. Herbert came to ACE in 2015 and took part in ACE’s Project Comeback, which includes Adult Education and Literacy as a main component of its curriculum. Mr. Hodge has been employed full-time since July 2015 and was recently promoted to a supervisor position with ACE’s contract services team.
The Committee hearing aimed to learn more about the programs that provide Adult Education and Literacy in New York City. ACE does not receive any public or city funding for it’s Adult Education and Literacy program. Successes like Mr. Hodge’s are possible because of partners like you.
