The overall aim of this program is to provide GED and Essential Skills training and preparation for vulnerable and English Language Learning populations. Specifically, this program is intended to serve Low German Mennonite (LGM) and other low literacy adults who are 18 years of age or older. These learners work primarily as agriculture or factory labourers. Historically, Grade 12 or high school completion was not required for work in these occupations. However, employers are now requesting high school completion as a condition of employment. Many LGMs are seeking assistance in preparation for the GED exams.
