Have you left high school without a high school diploma? Are you interested in getting your GED?
The Career Place works with GED programs located in Cambridge, Chelsea, Malden, and Somerville to offer GED test preparation as well as guidance on job search, career exploration, and college opportunities.
The programs are for youth between the ages of 16–21 who are low–income or have a barrier to employment and live in the Metro North Region.
