Job Readiness

   Even after you have recieved your GED, it can be tough to find a job in today's difficult market. INSIGHT offers assistance to individuals during the job search and application process, as well as weekly job readiness sessions. Topics include resume writing, interview preparation, and much more. INSIGHT also works with community partners to set students up with job shadowing opportunities and temporary job placements.

College Prep

   Though many may not think so, college is always an option with your GED. INSIGHT can help with the college application and financial aid process, and will work with students to find the best opportunities for furthering their education. Higher education is a path that everyone should consider, so stop in and ask an INSIGHT staff member about which college path or vocational training opportunities would be right for you.

Counseling and Case Management

   Whether you are pursuing your GED, employment, college, or job training, it can be difficult to go through the process alone. INSIGHT's dedicated case managers are there every step of the way to motivate, listen, and help with any and all obstacles to your success. Our on-site clinician, Lisa Daponte (LCSW) is also on hand to discuss and assist with more personal and private issues.
