Urban League GED open to ages 17 and up
ULCC's program has removed age restrictions

In an effort to increase service, opportunity and educational impact, the Urban League of Central Carolinas has waived the age limitation on their “Not At-Risk… At Opportunity” General Equivalency Diploma Program.

Previously, the GED program served ages 17 through 24 only. The program now serves any individual over the age of 17 with no age maximum.

ULCC’s GED program, which offers instructor-guided coursework three days a week, has seen an uptick in older adults signing up for the program since the age restriction has been lifted.

“With the expansion of the GED program and the addition of Jacobs Ladder Job Readiness Center, we are now even more capable of ensuring that those desiring to empower their lives are afforded the opportunity to do so,” said ULCC President and CEO Patrick Graham.

Call (704) 373-2256 ext. 218 for more information about ULCC’s GED program and other training programs.
