Education

Obtaining a High School Diploma or GED is paramount on the path to success. By achieving this goal, our youth are better prepared for employment opportunities and are diverted from the path to poverty.

GED Classes

We know that “traditional school” isn’t a good fit for every student, but we believe that every person deserves an education. Our staff work with youth in a low-pressure, flexible environment to help each person learn the way he or she learns best.

 

Interested in taking GED classes? Students can start their GED at any time. Just walk in during class times listed above and we’ll get you started. GED Classes at The HUB are FREE! Assistance may be available to assist students in paying for GED exams.

GED Class Times:
Monday – Friday 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. 1 p.m. – 3 p.m.

Back on Track

The Back on Track program is offered in partnership with Lincoln Public Schools at Lincoln High. The HUB’s staff members take referrals for youth who are in danger of falling behind in credits, are habitually truant, or are facing other barriers that are preventing regular school attendance. The HUB staff will work with youth to help the student reach their educational goals.

LEAP

The HUB staff provides support  in the areas of career exploration and post-secondary education preparedness for young people who are involved, or who have ever been involved in the child welfare or juvenile justice system. Youth can be referred through our Central Access Navigator, school administration or counselor and will receive support in navigating the process of pursuing postsecondary education or a career path. Once enrolled in college, support will continue through a partnership with Central Plans for first year support services.

This program is provided in partnership with Nebraska Children & Families Foundation with Social Innovation Funding through The Annie E. Casey Foundation
