GED preparation is required for all youth in our Workforce Development program until they attain their high school credential. GED classes are offered 3 days per week during the Morning Activities block of the Workforce Development schedule. UTEC also pays for GED testing costs as our young people work through the 5 required tests to earn a GED.
Integrated GED Approach
UTEC's GED instructor is a licensed teacher who not only teaches the morning sessions but works to develop GED lessons that connect directly to real-world situations that young people encounter in Workforce Development - like using the example of doubling a recipe to work through a lesson on fractions.
Our GED program focuses not only on passing the GED test, but also integrates themes of social justice and life skills. Furthermore, youth who are in the Workforce Development program learn academic concepts through a curriculum that references the skills that they are learning in the various social enterprises and through the study of current events. The goal of the GED program is to develop youth’s knowledge base and cultivate youth’s empowerment through reflection and investigation of their larger social environment.
