Funds raised in the 2017 End-to-End will, in part, support the Adult Education School. AES welcomes students from 16 years up who are seeking their high school equivalency diplomas (GED), as well as students who simply want to learn to read. The school provides the education necessary for a student seeking to earn his or her GED, from simple testing of students that are already well prepared for the GED, to the education of others who need further knowledge and skills before they are ready to take the GED exam. Funding will be used to provide a critical service for young and adult learners who have dropped out of mainstream education and who require alternative education, life coaching and work readiness support.
Other ETE 2017 charities include Age Concern, Greenrock, and Raleigh. In addition, participants will be able to vote for a special “people’s choice” recipient for E2E funding (choosing between Bermuda Society for the Blind, Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, and YouthNet).
