About the Program
After noticing that the majority of our trainees did not have a high school diploma, MBW sought a way to help. Realizing how important that step, MBW created an alternative school, where the students are required to take online courses through an accredited program and receive an actual high school diploma upon graduation.
Our students at MBW Education spend half their day in vocational training and the remaining part in our school. All trainees have access to other programs such as anger management, learning finances, and art. All courses are intended to help foster a stronger person who can face the many challenges of today. We have licensed social workers on staff to help with case management and mental health. Each student is tracked on their personal journey.
At MBW, we want students to find their passions and help them reach their personal goals. It is very important to help our trainees become positive members of our community.
