the E.A.R.N. Way

The “Why” Behind E.A.R.N.

I really would like to attend college, but can’t because I don’t have a high school diploma. I have been trying for over two years, but every time I got close, I would come back to a dead-end, either because of my age or financial problems.

Our Mission

Educational Assistance Resources Network (E.A.R.N.) is dedicated to building stronger communities,one life-challenged student at a time.

Through an integrated delivery of partner support services, our aid recipients become empowered to improve their lives-and by consequence, the lives of their families-as they attain their once elusive high school diploma or GED. Gaining access to relevant academic programs regardless of their present circumstances allows for them to “earn” the opportunity for a better life which leads to a stronger community for all.
