The program will incorporate a GED (General Education Development) testing service along with computer literacy and skills training to help ex-offender clients improve their employability, academic and life skills. In addition, familiarity with the Internet and electronic mail (e-mail) puts a whole new world of communication and information at the fingertips of modern ex-offenders.
