The Brazos Valley Council of Governments (BVCOG) is hosting a community luncheon on adult basic education in the Brazos Valley.
There are 35,648 adults in the Brazos Valley who do not have a high school diploma or GED. This forum will discuss the importance of those adults getting a GED and enhance efforts to draw-in this underserved population while building a dialog of re-engaging adults and youth who are no longer in public education.
The program will include a screening of excerpts from the TEDTalks Education special which aired on May 7th, 2013. The program will include: a speaker from a public school which has success at keeping borderline students in school (i.e. what the school is doing that works); a speaker from Blinn College that describes how it engages recent GED graduates in continuing their education; a speaker from a public assistance program who discusses enlistment and outreach to government assisted-families; and finally, three speakers who are recent GED graduates will share their personal stories.
Limited seating is available. Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to Judson Brown at (979) 595-2801 ext 2081 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org .
