Our General Educational Development (GED) program goes beyond preparing students for the exam by integrating social justice and life skill themes to develop their knowledge base and cultivate empowerment through reflection and investigation of their larger social environment. We believe this method empowers youth as agents in their learning as well as their lives and communities.
In a typical GED class at Moco Reconnect , students participate in engaging, interactive activities and the type of instruction that accommodates different learning styles and student needs. Practice tests are given to assess students’ academic readiness. As students demonstrate preparedness, our educational team guides them through each step of the test process. The educational team also keeps students informed of other professional, educational, and social opportunities available to them.
Our workforce programs at Moco Reconnect offer training, certifications, and internships career exploration opportunities immerse youth in hands-on experiences based on their career interests. Training opportunities may include workplace safety, entrepreneurship, leadership, construction and maintenance, CPR, OSHA, and Microsoft Office. Internships are available with partner businesses including government offices, hospitals, community organizations, educational institutions, and the service sector.
Participants of our Moco Reconnect workforce programs receive job placement and follow-up support. This may include updating a resume, cover letter, receiving targeted coaching on navigating a workplace situation and self-advocacy.
