Celebrate Literacy Partners’ 2014 GED graduates

See also

There is nothing as exhilarating and nerve-racking as graduation. This is especially true for adult learners who for different reasons had “stopped” out before completing their high school education. However, because of organizations like Literacy Partners (LP), many adult learners complete GED programs. On July 29, LP celebrates its recent GED graduates.

In addition to congratulating recent graduates, Executive Director Anthony Tassi and LP will present “a $1,000 scholarship to a graduating student in honor of Rodman Drake, a longtime friend of LP.” Individuals interested in participating in the free graduation celebration should RSVP at externalaffairs@literacypartners.org or 646-237-0118. The venue is Scholastic Auditorium at 557 Broadway, between Spring and Prince Streets, from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

For over 40 years, LP has “believed that the ability to read is an essential element of an enriched and fulfilling life.” Its “high-quality, community-based literacy programs in New York City empower adults to reach their full potential as individuals, parents, and citizens.”

Through its core programs (ABE, Pre-GED, GED, and ESOL), which include financial and health literacy as well as job-readiness preparation, LP significantly influences the lives of adult learners and their families. LP students benefit by having qualified teachers, trained volunteer tutors, and dedicated program staff. With self-determination and encouragement, LP students focus on achieving their specific literacy goals as they progress through the programs.

Contact LP at info@literacypartners.org for general information and externalaffairs@literacypartners.org for specific information about the 2014 GED graduation event.
