GED is a way for people who did not receive a high school diploma to earn a secondary school credential. The GED has four exams which measure knowledge and skills expected of high school graduates. The exams are Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies. High School+ is a way to earn a high school diploma by filling in gaps on your high school transcript. Both are great options! Hopelink’s GED/High School+ teachers can help you decide which option is best for you.

We offer “English for Work” classes. These classes focus on helping people improve their English language skills to prepare for employment in the U.S.

Hopelink Adult Education is a part of the community and technical college system in Washington State. We work closely with local colleges, and we are happy to help our students get connected to a college program that is right for them.

Our goal is to connect each student to resources that can help them reach their goals. Hopelink’s Adult Education team encourages students to utilize the variety of services that are offered at Hopelink Centers. We work hard to be knowledgeable about community resources and events such as low-cost health services, parenting resources, hiring events, job training programs, English language classes, etc. We train volunteers to serve as advisers and advocates who provide one-on-one support to students. We also offer free online learning resources to empower students to learn independently, and we provide scholarships for students to take the GED tests.

Yes! See here for information about volunteer opportunities. To become a volunteer, a Hopelink orientation and background check are required. Visit the volunteer page for more information.
