The Tampa Bay community and former students have reached out to help future GED test takers take their GED exam. Even in this time s of economic woes, there are still many who have sacrificed to give what they can. Community members have been donated money to cover the cost of taking the GED tests. Although many places do offer free GED test preparation classes, there is a fee to take the tests.

It really is great to see members of the community chip in to help one another. It is hard to find a job, but not having a high school diploma makes it even more difficult. These donations are really helping people support themselves and their families. When someone passes the GED they receive a Florida High School diploma and it is accepted by most colleges and employers.
