Goal

Provide a financial pathway for students to take the GED exam who are unable to afford the testing fee. 

 

What will be done with my students

Adult education students at the Salvation Army Rehabilitation Center often find themselves unable to afford the GED exam because of a long term commitment away from their family and their job while attending an inpatient sobriety program. They are working hard rebuilding character, repairing family relationships, renovating their lives, restoring work ethic and balancing their educational goals. The new 2014 test costs almost twice the amount of the previous version. Each of the four components of the test cost $32. Four successful passing sections equals a diploma!  

 

Benefits to my students

Grant funds will help fund the cost of up to 16 individual components of the 2014 GED test, or up to 4 complete exams should the students complete and pass all four sections. 

 

Describe the Students

All students at the Salvation Army Rehabilitation Center are from all walks of life, from young men to older men, who come from different racial and financial backgrounds all with the same goal to resume a normal life.  

 

Budget Narrative

Funds will cover the cost of 12 components for the GED exam at $32 each for a total of $384.00.
