SBV of the Week: GED Tutors

Underwriting support from:

Each week the Volunteer Center will highlight an exciting skill-based volunteer opportunity found on our Volunteer Solutions website. This week's opportunity comes from Goodwill Industries.

GED tutors are needed!

In conjunction with the Inner-City Neighborhood Project, Goodwill Industries will be helping to facilitate a free GED prep course at Bates Place Ministry Center (636 Bates St. SE.). The goal behind this program is to provide individualized and small group tutoring in order to help people within South-East Grand Rapids successfully earn their GED.

Tutors are needed on a regular basis to help prepare individuals to take their GED test. Tutoring will begin the week of May 3 on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3-5pm.

The Inner-City Neighborhood Project’s (ICNP) goal is two fold. It is designed to help ex-offenders and other court-involved individuals from within Southeast Grand Rapids with education, job training and employment. The ICNP is also designed to engage these individuals in community service and other community based social activities within southeast Grand Rapids.

Although the project is focused on helping ex-offenders and other court involved individuals, these GED classes will be open to anyone over 18 who wants to take them!
