In an effort to continuously support academic achievement, the Atlanta Public Schools (APS) Adult Literacy Program will host an event next week to help adults explore the range of opportunities available after earning a high school diploma or GED.
The Adult Literacy Program educates adults who did not complete high school, and helps them reach their greatest potential in the home, workplace and community. In April, eligible students participated in the program’s first commencement ceremony, and as a continuation of that notable milestone APS is providing opportunities for program participants to learn about jobs and obtain additional skills to become self-reliant. Next week’s event was organized for that purpose.
On June 21, representatives from local colleges including Atlanta Metropolitan State College, Atlanta Technical College, Bauder College, Devry University, Georgia Perimeter College and Georgia Piedmont College will be on hand to provide information about post-secondary education opportunities, financial aid and college exam-prep workshops. Attendees can also expect to see representatives from community resource organizations like Year Up Atlanta and the Atlanta Workforce Development Agency Center for Working Families.
Adult Literacy Program staff will also be available to enroll prospective students for orientation into the GED program.
The college, career and community resource event will occur on Friday, June 21 from 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 pm at the APS Adult Learning Center, 1757 Mary Dell Drive, Atlanta, GA
