Education is paramount to improving someone’s life. We know this at Goodwill Industries of Southwestern Michigan, that’s why we go the extra mile to help adult learners obtain the necessary education to pass their GED exam. Wondering what “going the extra mile” means?
Adult education can be intimidating, especially if you have not been in a classroom in years.Those that haven’t graduated from high school can still get a high school equivalency diploma, also called a GED. We do our best to remove any intimidating aspect to continuing education. As a result, any day of the week you will find adult learners from 18 – 65 (yes, really!).
We have a dedicated team that runs our GED program. Passing the test to get your GED certificate is our goal and we will work with you until you’ve mastered every subject. GED classes are designed to give you the best possible outcome. We also know that learning on an empty stomach is challenging that’s why we serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner 5 days a week in our education center.
According to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, earnings increase and unemployment decreases as educational attainment rises. Grouping workers by education level, the chart shows that those with more education have higher earnings and lower rates of unemployment than those with less education.
