Information and Registration Sessions for Fall Classes at ALI Program at Wellspring House
The Adult Learning Initiative (ALI) at Wellspring House in Gloucester will be holding Information and Registration Sessions for parties interested in attending our fall classes. Sessions will be held Thursday, September 5th and Tuesday, September 10th from 9:00 am-12:00 pm. Fall classes begin Monday, September 16th and you must be registered before that date.
ALI provides free classes in English, Math, Computer Skills, and Career Development, for men and women interested in attaining a GED, returning to school or finding a career. If you are seeking a GED, now is the time to act as the test will change in 2014 to become a longer, more expensive, computer-based version. If you have not completed the GED exam by the end of 2013, all prior scores will expire.
The goal of the ALI program is to help individuals move toward personal and financial self-reliance by gaining self-confidence, direction, motivation and workplace skills necessary to further their education and careers.
Whether your goal is to go back to school or to get back into the workforce, come to an Information and Registration Session to see what the program is all about. Call Program Coordinator Mary Scofield for more information or to sign up for classes at (978) 281-3558, ext. 304. Wellspring House is located at 302 Essex Ave., Gloucester MA
