FUTURE NOW offers free GED preparatory classes through the NYC Department of Education’s GED PLUS Program for students ages 17 to 20. These classes are a great opportunity for students to move ahead in their education, explore their abilities and plan their future careers.
We offer free college enrollment and ongoing support upon completion of the GED. Services include college preparatory classes, peer mentoring, internships and individual tutoring through the Robin Hood Foundation, IMPACT, Burberry, Henkels & McCoy and GED Plus.
Henkels and McCoy (H&M) offers free computer assembly and application training, national certification in customer service, career counseling and work readiness training. The program offers alternative learning methods such as their “build-to-keep” component, in which each participant assembles a state-of-the-art computer and, after meeting pre-established goals, tis allowed to keep the computer he or she built.
H&M also offers job placement services to participants, based on their educational attainment and interests. All participants receive continuing support while employed.
