Repositioning Adult Through Education (RAE)

The RAE programme

“Another chance at education”


The RAE Programme is an adult education programme for the inner city community of Trench Town and the surrounding communities.

It was established in September 2004 and its overall goal is the remedial education of adults and adolescents using the JFLL syllabus allowing them to continue to pursue further education and become employable or develop their own business.

Ultimately, the programme should contribute to reduction of poverty and violence by providing individuals with options for personal growth and development.

It consists of three levels (Level 1-3) and the examination and certification are managed by JFLL. The classes are held on Mondays to Thursdays from 5- 7pm.  Presentations on HIV/AIDS & STI prevention are conducted as part of the course offering.
