What our graduates have to say
2024 GED Graduate, Heather!
Heather came to FLC from our partnership with GST MI works in Huron County in 2021. She worked full-time while raising her children and getting her GED. In addition, she became certified in phlebotomy and as a medical assistant. Having completed her GED, Heather will receive a raise and be able to move into becoming a certified radiology technician. Way to go, Heather! "Have patience. Everything great comes to those who wait and take their time to accomplish their goals. " -Heather
2023 GED Graduate, Sara!
“Being able to work one on one with someone made everything super simple. Instead of having a teacher trying to focus on everyone in a classroom, you can easily ask for help and have as much time with them as you need. The process was much more enjoyable because my friendship with everyone at Michigan Works/Family Literacy Center and everyone encouraged me to graduate." Sara
2023 GED Graduate, Elizabeth!
Getting your GED is a big achievement! It shows you're determined and believe in yourself. It's like turning challenges into stepping stones and opening doors to new possibilities. Your GED is a symbol of your power to overcome and succeed. Keep going, and embrace a brighter future!
2023 GED Graduate, RJ!
“Initially I had come to FLC only to earn my GED and be done. After meeting with JMG and WIOA through FLC, that’s when I really jumped in full force to use all the resources to help me get my future going! If you have the opportunities, the resources, and the aid, use them!" -RJ
2023 GED Graduate, Summer!
“Coming to FLC changed my life and opened so many new doors. I struggled with math immensely and thanks to the tutors at FLC and my JMG specialist, I was able to learn and understand it quicker. I would strongly suggest anyone looking to get their GED, to stop in to FLC!” -Summer
2023 GED Graduate, Ashley!
" I feel more successful after receiving my GED and more accomplished. I would give the advice of just doing it. It is worth getting your GED. I put it off for a long time and started working right away. I am so glad I did it." -Ashley
2023 GED Graduate, Gabby!
"As a mom of two little ones, life gets pretty hectic. I knew getting my GED would give me a lot more opportunities to provide for my family. I'm so proud of myself and my kids can be proud of me too."

"Before starting my GED I felt stuck and wasn’t able to do what I wanted to do. Now I feel like I have a lot more opportunities and anything that I want now, I can do by having my GED. My advice to anyone getting a GED is to believe in yourself and have support. Shawna helped me a lot by being my cheerleader and believing in me. She helped me believe in myself." -Jared
2023 GED Graduate, Terra
2023 GED Graduate, Damien!
“When I first came in, I was very nervous. I wasn’t sure I was going to make it, but I knew I had to push on and do it one day, no matter how long it took. My tutor, Shawna, was awesome and kept learning fun for me. I failed the math test two times, and I felt like the world was ending. I had to push through that, and I GOT IT! The math was my highest score overall. My advice to other students who are starting the process is to do your duty as a person, finish strong, and have this under your belt. Don’t waste the opportunity!” - Damian
2023 GED Graduate, Lila!
“When I came in to get my GED, I was nervous and scared for my future. That quickly disappeared as I got to know my tutor and the FLC staff and found out how helpful they were. They were flexible for my schedule and poured in so much work to help me out! Now as GED graduate I’m feeling so thankful and so much more secure in my future. I feel like I can pursue what I want to do in life. I feel like they opened doors and gave me opportunities that would have not opened otherwise.” - Lila
2023 GED Graduate, Jackson!
"Coming to FLC really helped streamline the process of getting my GED. I was unsure of how to approach studying for the tests, scheduling, and taking the actual tests, but thanks to everyone at FLC, I was able to get the help I needed to graduate!" - Jackson
2023 GED Graduate, Elizabeth!
“Everybody helped with everything I needed to get done. JMG is a great support system for students like me. Before I entered JMG, I was feeling very anxious and frustrated about what was ahead of me. I knew I needed to get my education and find employment. Now after completing my GED and planning for my next steps, I feel more in control of my life. And I also feel confident in what is ahead. I’m still anxious, but it is in a good way because I am motivated to reach my goals.”- Elizabeth
2022 GED Graduate, Jillian!
“Honestly, the program helped me so much. I couldn’t have earned my GED without the support of Family Literacy Center. I definitely feel more confident in myself because of what I have achieved in this program. If I described my future in one word, it would be ‘hopeful’.” – Jillian
2022 GED Graduate, Dakota!
“If you’re not 1st you’re last.” FLC was a great help. They are the best. I couldn’t have done it without them. I highly recommend going there to get your GED. I felt like when I first came here that I didn’t want to get my GED and didn’t want to invest in myself and now I feel proud of myself and excited for my future." -Dakota
