FUTURE NOW offers free GED preparatory classes through the NYC Department of Education’s GED PLUS Program for students ages 17-21. 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.
All students who successfully enrolled into college become immediate members of Club I.M.P.A.C.T. (Improving My Progress at College Today), a striving student-led organization that provides support to peers of students while they complete their college education.
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. A key component of this program is that each participant assembles a state-of-the-art computer and, after meeting pre-established goals, the student is allowed to keep the computer he or she built.
H&M also offers job placement services to participants upon request. Placement sites are determined based on the participant’s educational attainment and interests. All participants receive continuing services and support while employed.
