Achieving a GED takes hard work, dedication, and hours of coaching from a team of instructors and volunteers who believe in the dreams of others.
Throughout Northeast Georgia, North Georgia Technical College’s learning centers offer free classes to those who wish to attain their GED or prepare for college entrance tests. The level of service and individual help given to those students would not be possible without the help of a large number of volunteers.
North Georgia Technical College recently held an adult literacy volunteer appreciation luncheon.
From Stephens County, Emily Hayes, Judy Lance, James Smith, Stephanie Broome, Merry Fleming, Trushna Nadig, and Gerald Jones attended the celebration. Habersham County volunteers who attended included Matt McClurg, Aaron Rogowski, Michael Carroll, Bob Powell, Marilyn Powell, and Joy Purcell.
The adult education program is designed to assist adults returning to school to resume educational programs which were interrupted in earlier years. Students are given assistance in writing, math skills, and reading comprehensive skills to re-enter the job market after a layoff; preparing for the GED Tests to qualify for a job or credit program that requires a high school diploma to graduate, learning English as their second language, learning to use a computer, or just working toward a personal educational goal. All instructional materials are available for student use at no cost.
