To support a Youth Services Social Worker who will provide case management support to teens and young adults participating in their GED Plus Program. Due to its focus on inclusiveness, the program faces unique challenges since they have no set criteria for admission and/or continuation in the program, and many of their participants have been rejected by other GED programs. The program meets youth at their present level of performance and provides practical guidance to help them meet their goals. The Social Worker, supported by a team of three MSW interns, will help them to keep their participants engaged and connected to the program, and help address the problems and distractions that have derailed their previous attempts to work towards obtaining a GED.
