EDUCATION & CAREER SERVICES
Our free adult education classes put clients on the path to better jobs and higher wages. We help community members learn and practice English, prepare for citizenship exams, and earn high school equivalency diplomas (GED). And, our support doesn’t end after graduation. Many of our students continue to build on these skills and enroll in our career development and professional training courses. Over 600 students are enrolled in the various classes listed below.
Everyone at NMIC believed in me and encouraged me to pursue my passion and my dreams. They did a terrific job of helping me out when I was struggling and I could turn to them for guidance. They helped me be a great student and encourage others to pursue their passions.
