Trident Literacy Association to Hold Public GED Info Sessions at the Berkeley County Library System

North Charleston, SC – Over 80,000 adults in the Charleston metro do not have their high school diploma or GED. The GED can be a gatekeeper to many in our community allowing access to better paying studentjobs, college, and the military. Together we can break the cycle of poverty in our community and provide equitable educational opportunities to all adults. A more educated community means a more prosperous community. This is why Trident Literacy Association works with and for adults in the tri-county area to earn their GED and WorkKeys certificate.

To promote community access to knowledge about the GED, TLA is hosting a series of GED Information Sessions at Berkeley County Libraries. These sessions are designed to present essential details about the GED test and a Q/A segment devoted to addressing attendees’ questions. Times, days, and locations for the GED Information Sessions are as follows:

  • Monday, March 28, 2016 – Hanahan Library Meeting Room from 5:00 – 6:30pm
  • Tuesday, March 29, 2016 – Sangaree Library Meeting Room from 5:00 – 6:30pm
  • Wednesday, March 30, 2016 – Goose Creek Library Meeting Room from 5:00 – 6:30pm
