The Bridge CDC has added Community GED Programs and Language Translation Services to its repertoire.
Starting January 2014, the GED test will switch from pencil and paper to a computer-based version. The new test will have four areas of concentration: reasoning through language arts (reading through language arts and writing through language arts), mathematics, science, and social studies. Although this change in GED will benefit students in years to come; initially the increased cost, transition to computers only and significant changes in content of questions will be barriers for our students. In order to appropriately prepare current and new students for the GED, The Bridge CDC is providing each our students with a personal online tutoring account. In addition we are raising funds to purchase 5 computers per GED site. You can DONATE NOW by clicking here.
In response to our fellow organizations growing need to communicate with their increasingly diverse populations, The Bridge CDC provides certified interpreters to interpret languages during in-person meetings and/or translate documents. Potential clients can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
