The GENERAL EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT (GED) provides a student ages 17 to 24 with their High School Equivalency Certificate. This program provides the GED pre-test, GED tests, and the re-take GED tests, at no cost to the youth. A GED teacher provides classroom lessons, individual tutoring, books and materials to assist the student in passing the GED tests. Class days are Monday through Friday (9:00am - 12:00pm & 12:30 - 3:30pm) with individual tutoring on Mondays. There are four (4) tests; Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Once the youth has passed all four tests, they will obtain their High School Equivalency Certificate which demonstrates achievement at a high school level.
The primary goal of the Lansing School District WIOA Youth program is to assist youth in obtaining successful completion of their high school education or obtaining their High School Equivalency Certificate (GED).
Students in the program are eligible for Work Experience which provides short term employment. This is a paid work experience (minimum wage) which assists the youth in developing job skills, building a resume and if applicable, earning work experience credits for school.
The Jobs for Michigan Program is in the GED Classroom at CAMW!. The JMG program is to assist youth with focusing on their education and to develop Leadership Skills. It provides employability and technical skills development, leadership opportunities, job development, and job placement services that will result in a career after graduation and/or enrollment in a postsecondary education.
