|Valjean Society is proud to partner with College America and the Good Neighbor Initiative to assist program participants in gaining their General Educational Development (GED) certificates. GED testing can be a powerful option for those of us who did not complete high school for whatever reason. GED Testing Service reports that 95 percent of colleges and universities accept a GED diploma for admissions, and the U.S. Census Bureau reports that high school graduates and GED diploma recipients earn higher wages than high school dropouts. The Good Neighbor Initiative provides everything needed for our program participants to earn their GED credential—instruction, tutoring, books and computers. They even pay the test fee!
