Mission Statement

Southeast Ministry is a grass roots social justice ministry of the Lutheran Church of the Reformation that listens to the needs of the community and develops culturally sensitive education programs that address the root causes of social problems such as poverty, illiteracy and violence.

Description

Located in the heart of southeast Washington, Southeast Ministry annually provides education and employment services for approximately 700 low-income persons.

Since 1994, it has been the goal of Southeast Ministry's GED program to prepare students to take the official GED test given at UDC. Daily classes are held in a classroom setting with private tutoring available throughout the eight week sessions. All five test subjects--science, social studies, writing,and math are taught.

Through AMEN (Anacostia Mentoring and Employment Network), people learn real-world job skills and are assisted with job placement in diverse fields. For these men and women, learning to be an employee can be a new experience, and the staff of SEM puts them on the right path.
