Getting your GED is a great way to improve your quality of life. For many of our students, a GED is the first step to getting a better job, continuing their education, or proving to themselves that they can finish school. No matter what your motivation, the Literacy Council of White County can help you study for your GED. We do not offer the test or the official GED test preparation class; rather, we work with students who are not yet ready to take their GED. Students who read below a 9th grade level generally need to study more before they are ready for an official GED class. We study with them until their literacy levels are high enough that they can move on to a GED class.
Finding employment can be a difficult task for some. Whether you need help developing soft skills to be successful in the work place or just need a little help learning computer skills, resume writing, or interviewing skills, the Literacy Council of White County can help.
We offer one on one and group instruction for Work Place skills to help you find a job, retain employment, or advance in your current job.
With all the changes in health care and insurance it is hard to keep up with all the information you need to keep yourself and your family healthy.
Our health literacy classes can help you navigate the waters of talking with your doctor and up to date health information.
Our financial literacy classes can help you learn to manage your money and finances, create budgets, and understand your paycheck.
Dyslexia and other reading struggles can be genetic. Often when a parent struggles with literacy skills, their children do as well. The Literacy Council of White County is developing Family Literacy services to meet the needs of the entire family unit. This includes providing resources for parents to help their children succeed, and summer intervention programs for children.
