Arkansas Adult Education Hosts Third Annual Statewide Open House
Students and Graduates Share Stories of Success
Little Rock, AR (September 3, 2019) – Arkansas Adult Education centers across the state will participate in the third annual Arkansas’ Adult Education Open House on Thursday, September 19, 2019 from 10:30am to 2:00 pm. Adult Education (Adult Ed), a section of the Division of Workforce Services in the Department of Commerce, and its network of nearly 40 centers will showcase options to help Arkansans get job-ready.
Current and former students will highlight how they’ve benefitted from the free programs, and teachers will provide details about each of Adult Ed’s programs including:
- Integrated Education and Training, which allows students to earn job industry certifications or credentials while improving their basic academic skills;
- Acquiring an Arkansas High School diploma through GED® preparation;
- English Language Acquisition (ELA);
- And Workforce Alliance for Growth in the Economy (WAGE™).
“As parents transition their children back to school for the start of a new academic year, we know that it’s also a great time for adults to consider how they can improve their family’s financial outlook,” said Dr. Trenia Miles, director of Adult Education Section, Division of Workforce Services. “It starts with one step, coming into one of our centers to get the training and skills needed for jobs and careers that are in-demand now.”
“Success is the small efforts doing what’s right, to enhance life situations,” said Barbara Hamilton, Director of SAU Tech Adult Education Centers. “Once you enter our Center it is a second chance to move forward with your life goals. We provide free services to assist students to accomplish their education and or employment goals. Taking that first step toward accomplishing your goal can start with SAU Tech Adult Education Centers.”
For the 2018-19 school year, Adult Ed served 20,698 Arkansans statewide. Locations for each center around the state can be found at ARCareerEd.org or by calling 1-877-963-4GED (4433).
