    Basic Skills Improvement/GED® Preparation Classes

    AE/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. Students are assessed during orientation to determine their specific needs, and instruction is based accordingly. Teachers and tutors provide confidential instruction to all participants.

    Volunteer Tutors Needed

    Volunteer tutors are an important part of our AE/GED® program. 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!

    Citizenship

    SCC offers information on the steps in the Naturalization process and instruction in the key component of U.S. history and government that applicants must know for the USCIS interview. Candidates for U.S. citizenship must learn what it really means to participate in a democracy and the rights and responsibilities of U.S. citizens.

    English as a Second Language

    Classes are offered throughout southeast Nebraska for individuals who want to improve their English listening and speaking skills. As part of a Career Pathways program, all students will have the opportunity to improve employability skills and prepare for college or a career. Citizenship information also is available.

    No registration fee, all classes are free.

    For more information on Basic Skills, GED® Preparation, Citizenship, English as a Second Language, or being a volunteer, please contact the Adult Education office at 402-437-2719; 800-828-0072, ext. 2719; or email lsaffer@southeast.edu.
