Meet Ben. Ben stopped attending high school to go to work. But now he realizes that having a GED will help him build his skills and resume for better employment. Ben felt very anxious about attending GED classes. He had a lot of anxiety about classroom experiences and felt insecure about his skills. He worked with an LVNRV tutor to prepare for the GED. This year, he passed two of the four tests needed to attain his high school equivalency! He and his tutor and researching different programs available to him, once he passes his GED, at New River Community College so he can continue his education, increase his employability, and create the future that he dreams of.
