Guam – GCC Adult Education students learned just how many services are available to help them succeed in earning their high school diploma and in postsecondary education today, during GCC’s annual Adult Education conference.
This year’s theme, “Seeing into the Future,” encouraged the students to explore career paths and job opportunities.
The conference highlighted GCC’s federally-funded Adult Education programs (Adult Basic Education, Adult High School, and English as a Second Language), its public-private partnership GED® program, and GCC’s Admissions and Registration process, and counseling, financial aid, and tutoring services. Breakout sessions encouraged students to explore their career interests, learn how to create a resume and conduct themselves in a job interview, and learn about the WorkKeys program that can lead to a National Career Readiness Certificate. Several dozen students attended the conference, which was sponsored by GCC’s Adult Education Office and College Access Challenge Grant Program.
