A new pilot program helps youth earn a paycheck while pursuing their High School Equivalency (HSE, formally known as GED). Scholars at Work overcomes one of the greatest challenges youth face in meeting a career goal – how to pay the bills while taking time off for school. Through stipends to take care of financial needs along with individualized coaching and training, youth can earn the equivalent of a high school diploma on a pathway to success.
FutureLink put the call for eligible area youth ages 16 to 21 to attend a special orientation to Scholars at Work. The event is Tuesday, February 11th at the Missouri Job Center in Joplin. For more information on FutureLink eligibility as well as Scholars at Work, call 417-625-3617.
