For Young People
Feel Stuck? Learn New Skills!
Get your HiSET/GED
We don’t all follow the same path to success and sometimes the road is curvy. Maybe you are ready now for a new start. We might have supports that will work for you.
In addition to obtaining your high school equivalency credential, our HiSET programs will also help you find employment and get ready for the workforce. We currently have sites at Training Resources of America in Quincy, Wellspring Multiservice Center in Hull and at the Plymouth Boys and Girls Club. If those locations don’t suit you, look at this listing for other GED/HiSET programs in Massachusetts: Click Here!
