GED/Literacy and Workforce Development Program Assistant
The students that use the GED/Literacy and Workforce Development Program are primarily from the Heartside neighborhood, or from Kent County. These students come from all walks of life. Anywhere, from homelessness, domestic abuse, incarceration, and/or middle class families.
The students come to Heartside and take a series of four pretests, which helps to pinpoint exactly what they need to work on to pass the GED/High School Equivalency test. If a student passes the test, they will; go on to take the official GED test. We are also a nationally accredited testing center and will pay for them to take the test right at our site. We also work in Literacy, Work keys Training, and the CASAS testing.
