GED PROGRAM

The Family Literacy Center can help YOU earn your GED!  Students complete an intake interview and intake testing before being matched with a trained tutor.  Once you have been matched with a tutor you will start working on your specific areas in need of improvement.  Contact the office to get more information or make an appointment.  We also have tutors working in GST MI Works! offices in Lapeer, Sandusky, Caro, Bad Axe, and Owosso. 

Check out the GED check list for more information.

 

How much will this cost me?  There is no cost for our tutoring services.  Students in our program can take GED Ready practice tests for free when ready.  Additionally, students can get vouchers from the State of Michigan to pay for individual GED tests.  We will help with this process.  We are supported through individual donations, community partnerships, and grants.

JOBS FOR MICHIGAN GRADUATES

Special Services for Students 16 to 24 years old

Jobs for Michigan’s Graduates (JMG) is Michigan’s branch of the national JAG (Jobs for America’s Graduates) Program. JMG’s mission is to “equip young adults with the skills to overcome barriers and succeed in education, employment, and in life.” More specifically, the participants in Family Literacy Center’s JMG Program learn soft skills to help them on their journey toward college, trades training, employment, or the military. They learn about things like resume writing, interview skills, personal finances, college enrollment, and financial aid. Each year, the JMG Program at Family Literacy Center supports 50+ students up to age 24 who are earning their GED.

For more information about the JMG Program, give us a call 810-664-2737 or email our JMG Specialist, Ashley Fanson, at ashley@readlapeer.com.
