Members’ Voices

TEF's programs were amazing! They helped me upgrade my position. I am now earning more money and can provide a better future for my family.

Clarelle Karaha, a Certified Nursing Assistant at Brookhaven Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. Clarelle enrolled in Prep Academy, passed the licensed practical nurse (LPN) licensing exam and now works at Brookhaven as an LPN.

After two unsuccessful attempts at getting my BSN, TEF helped guide me to a program that finally worked for me. Not only was I able to get my BSN, but I now also have a master's degree!
