Sessions set on GED-career classes program

DANVILLE — People can learn more about Danville Area Community College's Accelerating Opportunities program at two upcoming orientation sessions.

The program is a grant-funded initiative that's designed to let students simultaneously earn their GED and a health care certified nursing assistant or automotive technology certificate.

Orientation sessions will be held at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Nov. 7 in Prairie Hall, Room 106, at DACC's main campus, 2000 E. Main St.

The program targets adults age 16 or older who are interested in getting their GED and career skills that can lead to employment.

Students will work on both their GED and career classes at the same time, earning certifications along the way. There is no cost to participate in this program.

The orientation is for people who are interested in registering for the spring 2014 classes.

Applicants must attend one of the two sessions.

Accelerating Opportunity is funded by a partnership of five of the nation's leading philanthropies including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Joyce Foundation, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the Kresge Foundation and the Open Society Foundations.
