The program is specifically tailored to help students aged 18 and above who are exploring different educational paths, including Adult Basic Education or High School Equivalency programs, and pursuing higher education in colleges, universities, or vocational schools.

The Educational Advisor will work closely with participants to develop a comprehensive plan to achieve their goals.
