Goal

The goal of this grant request is to provide financial assistance to those adult education students in need. This grant would afford them the opportunity to take one GED subject exam at no cost. 

 

What will be done with my students

Many of our students enrolled in our GED program are unemployed and are not able to afford the $32 to take their first of four GED subject exams. The total price of all four exams is $128. My goal is to provide the incentive of offering a 25% discount on the total price of the four exams.
Students eligible for this incentive, will be required to create a written proposal as to how this would benefit them. 

 

Benefits to my students

We, the instructors, in this program are very encouraging to our students. We believe every student enrolled in our class can and will succeed. We understand our students are working to overcome many obstacles including lack of self-confidence and motivation. Many of our students are hesitant to take the first exam as they have seen failure after failure. By providing, at no cost, their first state exam, we are providing encouragement and support that they can achieve a passing score.  

 

Describe the Students

Many of our adult education students enrolled in our Dixie Hollins Adult Education Center satellite program on the SPC-Seminole campus GED program have many obstacles to overcome. Some are as young as 16 with no work experience or have been a care-giver for a family member. Others have lost their jobs due to the fact they are without a high school diploma, while others are unemployed and unable to financially support their family without government assistance. We, the instructors, provide a welcoming environment in which all students feel comfortable and not intimidated. We celebrate all successes even the small ones. We look forward to every student achieving his/her goals including receiving his/her high school diploma in order to be a productive member of society.
