United Way of Clallam County and Peninsula College have partnered to offer financial assistance to those working towards completing their High School Equivalency. The fund allows students to apply for assistance to pay for things like bus passes, bills and childcare so that they can continue towards their goal of receiving their high school diploma.
The project also includes opportunities for mentorship. “We believe motivation plays a big role in keeping students engaged and able to complete all their tests. We have connected with service club members and leaders in the business community who want to work with these students to provide moral support as they work towards completing the work they need to do and move towards a trade, job or further education,” Ray Chirayath, United Way board treasurer.
To find out more about the High School Equivalency program please visit Peninsula College's website for more information. If you need financial assistance please speak with one of their representatives in the Basic Education department and mention the "Get-it-Done" fund.
