Bithlo GED Program

United Global Outreach (UGO) is very excited to be providing GED Classes with Orange County Public Schools every Wednesday evening from 6:00-8:00pm at Transformation Village. Bithlo residents of all ages and backgrounds are enrolled in these classes, and UGO is in need of UCF volunteers to help guarantee their success. Based on a person’s past experience, the journey to earn a GED can be an easy one, or a challenging one. Volunteers are expected to not only assist GED students in their studying but to also provide them with moral support to move through the program and succeed. Through working with GED students, UGO volunteers will build strong relationships with GED students and help keep them focused on the coursework and on the ultimate goal of earning their GED.

We will meet at the Lake Claire Pavilion at 5:15 pm to carpool and return to campus at 8:30 pm. Space is limited–Please sign up at least week in advance.

If you have any further questions, contact Ariadna Santos at vucfeducation@ucf.edu
