ThinkSelf’s Adult Education program focuses on working with adults who may have little or no educational experience by creating an engaging, supportive, ASL-rich classroom environment designed for adult learners.
Our free classes operate year-round – with a few seasonal breaks – and can help you improve your English reading and writing, basic math and budgeting for daily life and work, computer skills, and work-related skills. If you experience barriers to coming to school – such as transportation, technology access, or financial barriers – our learner advocates can work with you to break down those barriers. They can also support you in identifying your goals and making referrals to any other support services you may need to meet them.
Not sure what you want to do for work or school? Our Learner Advocates can help you figure out what’s next! They can support you with setting goals, making a plan, and finding the courses and certifications you need to succeed.
Tutoring & Resume Building
College is challenging, and you deserve support that helps you achieve your goals and succeed. Nowadays, communication at work and school is mainly through reading and writing – emails, texts, memos, etc. Navigating this English-centered world can be difficult and exhausting. ThinkSelf staff can work with you so you feel more prepared and confident at work or college!
Language for Work
ThinkSelf staff can work with you to better understand the language specifically used at your jobsite, and provide instruction to improve your skills in order to get that raise or promotion you’re going for! We work closely with Minnesota Employment Center to break down barriers and identify creative opportunities for employment.
