MoCo ReConnect and our partners at the Latin American Youth Center (LAYC) recently celebrated 20 GED graduates who received their diplomas.

The General Educational Development (GED) program at MoCo ReConnect goes beyond preparing students for the GED exam by integrating social justice and life-skill themes to develop students’ knowledge base and cultivate empowerment through reflection and investigation of their larger social environment. We believe this method empowers youth as agents in their learning, as well as their lives and communities.
