Adult Education West Campus Hosts Monthly Family Community Hub Dinner Club

On January 24th, the Detroit Public Schools Community District's Office of Family and Community Engagement (F.A.C.E.) kicked off their monthly dinner club to be held at the Adult Education Campuses.

The Adult Education--West Campus held the first dinner, as students, children, parents and staff all came together for a family-style dinner provided by the district's Office of Nutrition and Meals.

This was an opportunity to not only let community members get to know one another, but also to learn more about the district and its offerings.

Earlier this year, the two Adult Education Campuses (East and West) partnered with F.A.C.E. to create Family Community Hubs.  Through this venture, the buildings host, in addition to the already robust adult education courses, various classes and resources ranging from parenthood classes, to homework help, to classes on homeownership.

The dates for the monthly dinners going forward are: February 28th, March 28th, April 25th, May 23rd and June 27th (every fourth Thursday of the month).

The Adult Education Campuses are here to help adult students ages 18 and up obtain their high school diploma or GED.  With certified teachers for each subject and the ability to take the GED test free with vouchers, and an on-site testing center at the West Campus, the DPSCD Family Community Hubs exist to meet as many needs as possible for all learners.
