This back to school season isn’t just for kids. Without a high school diploma, opportunities in today’s economy can be limited. In fact, nearly 30% of adults with household incomes at or below the federal poverty line do not have a high school credential. Since the campaign initially launched in 2010, Finish Your Diploma has helped more than 800,000 adults in all 50 states find free test-prep classes in their area.
What is Finish Your Diploma?
The newly launched Finish Your Diploma PSAs address the tension felt by many adult learners to study while managing family, home and work responsibilities. While providing for family and better job opportunities are big motivators to earn a high school equivalency, it can feel daunting for adults who think they’ll have to face that challenge alone. But help is available! The FinishYourDiploma.org website provides information about free classes and other support programs!
We want to get the word out about the network of thousands of free adult education classes available throughout the country. In most communities, local nonprofits and literacy centers are able to offer free classes to help adults prepare for the GED, TASC, or HiSET high school equivalency tests. If we can get people in the door, these centers will provide support and guidance on the path towards higher education. For many adults, earning a high school equivalency diploma is the first step toward a college degree, better job, or brighter future.
