The Macon-Bibb County Office of Workforce Development along with Central Georgia Technical College will offer an accelerated GED program called "PowerUp" beginning this fall.
PowerUp will focus on people between 19 and 21 who dropped out of high school and are unemployed and unskilled. According to a news release, the program will take a young adult with no education, job or skills and in six months, assist them in getting a GED, an industry certification in advance manufacturing, Work Ready Certificate and a job through the On-the-Job Training Program.
The first PowerUp class will begin August 2012 and the students will graduate in December 2012. To qualify for PowerUp, students must register and complete the assessment process on July 9th and 10th.
The hours are from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m., at the Mobile Lab which will be parked in front of the Terminal Station on Cherry Street at the Office of Workforce Development Terminal Station. On July 11th the Mobile Lab will be at Central Georgia Technical College Building H from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
If selected, students will participate in an interview the week of July 11 from 9a.m. until 5 p.m.
