Community Resources

  • The Berkeley Educational Center provides educational opportunities and services to empower adults with the knowledge and skills necessary to participate effectively as citizens, workers, parents, and community members.
    The instructional curriculum is designed to ensure adults have the education and skills required to be competitive in our global economy for a better quality of life.
    The Center provides GED (High School Equivalency) classes, High School Diploma classes through the Berkeley County Virtual Learning Program, community education classes (when available), TABE, and WorkKeys® assessments to meet the growing needs of our community.
  • The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Employment and Training Program (E&T) is administered at the federal level by the United States Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Service.
