Partnerships in Excellence Achieving Careers and Education Initiative (PEACE)
The United Christian Leadership Ministry partners with Monroe-Orleans BOCES2, other stake holders, and participants to reduce crime, violence, and recidivism.
The program seeks to achieve this through life-enhancement alternatives for individuals and their families such as:
- TASC instruction (Test Assessing Secondary Completion, which replaced the General Educational Development, GED)
- Job training
- Employment counseling
BOCES2 certified instructors offer assessment through the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) and then provide instruction to help participants pass the TASC, the new version of the high-school equivalency exam.
Classes generally meet twice per week for a total of six hours at the Inner Faith Gospel Tabernacle Church, Rochester NY.
