Hopelink’s General Educational Development (GED) classes help improve your reading, writing, math and computer skills so you will be able to pass all four GED tests (math, science, social studies and language arts) and earn the equivalent of a high school diploma.
Hopelink GED classes are small so you will be able to ask questions and work at your own pace. Classes are free and offered at various times to suit your busy schedule, and you can begin anytime. Hopelink also offers scholarships to help pay for your GED exam fees.
English for Work
Hopelink’s English for Work program will help you learn to read, write, speak and listen in English to prepare you to get a job in the United States. You will learn about different jobs, set short- and long-term goals, identify your skills and strengths, write a resume and cover letter, search for jobs on the Internet, practice job interviews and learn about the U.S. workplace culture. Students are divided into small groups based on English ability, and there are separate groups for beginning, intermediate and advanced students.
Students do homework on a computer, so this class also is a great way to improve your computer skills. Classes last one quarter (three months), and are free.
Hopelink’s Family Development Program will help you create a long-term, step-by-step plan of action for your future. Working one-on-one with a Case Manager, you will discover your unique strengths as you set goals and work toward those goals. Your action plan will be tailored to your family’s needs, and may include such areas as education, employment, health, housing stability, parenting and financial management. Case Managers also are connected to many local resources and will offer referrals and advocate for families when necessary.
