New GED Courses Available In Far Rockaway
The Far Rockaway Overall Planning Committee, initiated by Congressman Gregory Meeks, is concerned by the lack of employment opportunities for peninsula residents who do not possess a high school or GED diploma. In coordination with the office of Assemblywoman Michele Titus, the Department of Education, District 5 Superintendent Kathleen Cashin, Far Rockaway High School Principal Denise Hallett and the SUNY-Queens Educational Opportunity Center, a series of GED Assessment Project (GAP) workshops will be offered in Far Rockaway starting this month. The first workshop is scheduled for Saturday, March 19 from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at Far Rockaway High School.
Anyone who does not possess a high school diploma and who is at least 17 years of age can participate by signing up in advance at one of the affiliated Far Rockaway sites, which include Congressman Meeks and Assemblywoman Titus’ offices, the Joseph P. Addabbo Community Resource Center and the Sorrentino Recreation Center. Participation is free. For more information call the SUNY Queens Education Opportunity Center at 718-725-3404 or 718-725-3335.
