Starting this fall, we are collaborating with the South Baltimore Learning Center (SBLC) to offer FREE GED preparation courses! Although we cannot say yet whether the courses will be held in-person, online or as a combination of the two, we can say, now is the time to learn more about the program, take an assessment and enroll!

SBLC provides a supportive, rigorous and transformative education for adults who are eager to learn, motivated to succeed, and committed to making a difference in their lives and those of others. They educate adult learners and empower them to succeed by securing better jobs, enhancing their personal lives and contributing to their community.

SBLC knows that learning can foster an individual’s literacy success, which can learners have more career opportunities. Learners will have access to CEC’s Workforce Wednesdays’ programs and supports, too

Community members can fill out the online interest form or call the UMB Community Engagement Center to find out more information, schedule a placement test and enroll.
