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
  • Mentoring

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.
