United Ministries – GED and Employment Readiness
Lacking a high school diploma or a GED means trying four times as hard to find a good job, often with frustrating results. The United Ministries GED program operates year-round and is open to adults ages 17 and older who are not currently enrolled in high school. The program provides one-on-one tutoring and study materials for use on-site and pays all but $20 of each participant’s $150 GED testing fees.
Employment Readiness is a free program that is available to unemployed or underemployed individuals who want help with obtaining and retaining quality employment, as well as working towards financial stability. Employment counselors work one-on-one with program participants to build relationships and craft individual plans that address and remove barriers that may be preventing employment success.
