The Delaware Tech Terry Campus is holding information sessions for an education and employment opportunity program for individuals 16-24 years old who are high school dropouts and are either underemployed or unemployed. The Out of School Youth program is offered at no cost through a partnership with the state’s Department of Labor Workforce Development Board. Students will have the opportunity to earn their GED® Secondary Credential, develop personal and professional skills and enhance marketability and competitiveness in the workplace.
The information sessions, which don’t require pre-registration, will be offered on campus in Building 200 at 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. on December 13, 2016 and 12 p.m. and 5 p.m. on December 15, 2016. The sessions will last approximately 1 hour.
Out of School Youth participants will obtain a GED® and earn industry-recognized certificates, participate in entrepreneurial education and leadership development opportunities, take financial literacy workshops and complete up to 262 hours of occupational training through paid work experience and internships. Upon completion of the program, individuals will be workforce ready and prepared to continue their post-secondary education.
