Summers County Adult Education Program offers new services

HINTON, WV (WOAY) – Almost 1 out of 6 West Virginians could benefit from adult education classes, and there’s a program that helps people for free.

Summers County Adult Education Program is back open for business after being closed since March 13th due to the pandemic.

“This program is for any adult that is over the age of 18 who is interested in going to school, who needs a job, or who wants to brush up on skill at a current job,” said Coordinator of Adult Education Jared Bailey.

The adult learning program is also offering a new service to help parents understand their child’s schoolwork better, so parents can help their children learn from home.

“We’re offering to parents that if they need to brush on skills to teach their children, give us a call and we can help you help them,” said Bailey.

Summers County Adult Education Program plans to reach out to the local teachers and principles to get access to lesson plans being taught in public schools in the upcoming fiscal year. This will also help parents assist their children throughout the year and help them stay on track.

“We want people to talk to us, we want more students because right now times are pretty trying and crazy, so if there were ever a time to follow your dreams and accomplish your goals, I think now is the time to jump on it,” said Bailey.

All services are free to any adult, regardless of income. You can call The Summers County Public Library and ask to speak with Jared or Missy for more information.
