Developing Self-Esteem and Work Readiness Skills
The MRLC is committed to developing the self-esteem and work
readiness skills of students age 18 – 60. Training is provided in Café
Food Services including New Jersey Food Handling Certification.
Computer Literacy provides rudimentary computer skills and training with
the software used in job-entry level office work. Through Low
Literacy, students learn the reading, writing and speaking skills
needed for daily life, and develop the capacity to enroll in the GED
class to earn their high school equivalency diploma.
Enriching and Worthwhile
The MRLC Board of Directors and Staff believe education at any stage of life is enriching and worthwhile. Through MRLC, the education provided is intended to help elevate and enhance the quality of life of all students enrolled in the program.
