GED on Wheels at Edendale Branch Library
Every Thursday from 2:30-4:30 pm at Edendale Branch Library.
MFN is a non-profit organization that works to empower local residents with educational tools for economic success. Our goal is to help as many high school dropouts become college and career ready so they will have the ability to earn a sustainable living wage. On January 14, 2012, MFN launched GED on Wheels (SM) at the Edendale Branch Library. GED on Wheels (SM) is a free mobile GED service and we provide TABE Tests, Official GED OPTs, and workshops on the GED Essay or GED Math. The GED can be the first step to new found personal success. Students prepare to succeed by learning helpful test taking strategies and becoming familiar with the format of the GED Test. They review and evaluate their abilities in English, Reading, and math. Instruction on the use of the Casio FX 260 Calculator is also included. Although this workshop is not intended as a substitute for an all inclusive GED Program, it can serve as an indicator of your their needs. The workshop is 2 hours.
This event is free and open to the public. Our program complements the library goals and interest of adult education in the community.
