After School Academic Program
KP Life Training Center’s (KPLTC) after school program is designed to improve students’ academic success and engagement in the learning process.  The program provides academic and remedial instruction for students in the areas of English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies and Foreign Languages.  Students gain specific knowledge and skills to help them meet the required Standards of Learning (SOL) for the State of Florida.  Sessions are conducted once a week for students in grades 6-12.

Computer Literacy
One of KPLTC’s goals is to bridge the technological gap between students in Title I schools and the broader community. KPLTC’s Computer Literacy Program offers a vast range of technology-related services that enable residents to take advantage of the educational and economic opportunities created by information technologies.

Vocational and Job Training
KPLTC in conjuction with TWEN will provide numerous training opportunities through our vocational education program. Certified online tutors supplement the courseware to assist youth in learning computer skills, various trades, and small business instruction. Electrical, plumbing, nursing/emt, drafting, culinary arts, and computer technology are among the many vocational courses available to youth as well as adults.

Education and Tutoring
Why are we concerned about public education?

The American workforce is changing. At the close of the last century, African-American and Hispanic children made up 34 percent of the school age population. In a decade, only 15 percent of the new entrants to the labor force will be native white males, compared with 47 percent today.

The fundamental nature of the economy has changed. As a consequence of global competition and advances in technology, many of the good blue-collar jobs the economy generated for most of the last century have largely disappeared. Almost all the jobs that pay enough to support a family now require higher levels of literacy, language fluency, and technical training than in the past. To a greater extent than ever before, educational attainment will determine one’s quality of life.

What We Do

TWEN projects produce learning and instructional materials in the form of software, videos, interactive radio instruction programs, online learning portals, research studies, printed teacher¹s guides and other resources.
