By helping today’s youth stay on track and get focused, SWAPTE is providing more highly- skilled, qualified and motivated workers for your business in the future.

SWAPTE has invested millions in education and training solutions to help young people stay in school, assisting them with tutoring and other help they need to succeed by graduating high school or attaining their GED.
