    Basic Skills Improvement/GED® Preparation Classes

    ABE/GED® classes run continuously in locations throughout southeast Nebraska. Adult Basic Education classes help students improve their basic skills for work, school, employment, GED® testing, or self-satisfaction.

Volunteer tutors assist students with GED® preparation, English as a Second Language or basic skills in the areas of reading, math and language. Requirements for becoming a volunteer tutor are simple: a high school diploma or GED® and a willingness to help students learn! For more information on becoming a volunteer, please contact Jodi Anderson at 402-437-2562 or email janderson1@southeast.com.
