The Salvation Army's Community Education Center in Petersburg
In an effort to meet the expanding and ever-changing needs of the Tri-Cities community, The Salvation Army began operating a Community Education Center (CEC) in Petersburg.
The CEC is located at The Petersburg Center for Worship and Service, as well as a satellite unit at The Salvation Army's Emergency and Transitional Shelter, also in Petersburg.
This program aims to provide individuals with the necessary skills to succeed and enrich their lives with the goal of gaining independence and self-sufficient.
The CEC provides free computer training and life-education classes such as; GED preparation, budgeting skills, reading comprehension and improvement, Microsoft Office, keyboarding as well as basic computer and internet skills.
The students enrolled at the CEC range in age from 19 to 78, and classes are offered both during the day and evenings Monday-Friday.
