Success GED Program

“We aim to foster success through family strengthening and youth development.”

Positive Direction for Youth & Families, Inc.’s  Success GED Program model supports the principle that GED students must do more than simply pass the GED exam to go on to lead a successful life. This 12-week program provides free adult education classes, professional development, soft skills training, and a career/education fair.

Every student can use the GED as a catapult for…

  •  Post GED Training,
  • College, and
  • Employment opportunities

“Consistent with our mission of Serving Others, we are excited to provide these organziations with funding to further literacy and education across the communities we call home…It is always so exciting to see the true and meaningful impact the Dollar General Literacy Foundation has on both children and adults looking to improve their lives through literacy.”  Todd Vasos, Dollar General CEO
