STUDENT STORY

Dan is a 20-year-old young man that came to Family Literacy Center seeking his GED. He is in the union working and wanted to apply to trades school. They told him he needed his GED to get into the school. He was devastated. He really liked the work he was doing and was excited about becoming an apprentice, but he had never finished his GED. He showed up at our offices one day just as we were closing. You could tell he was timid and a little uncertain about being here. He explained his story and was hopeful that we might be able to help him. He said that the Union had given him 6 months to get his GED and he needed help. We were able to practice test him and he tested well. He just needed some help with his math. Right about this time in-person tutoring stopped and switched to remote tutoring. We set him up with his tutor and he started tutoring remotely. He took his social studies and science tests and passed. He was moving along quickly. This week he took his math practice test and passed it. He is scheduling his test now. His trade school is starting next month.
