Free Adult Education Center Opens in Huntington


A charity has opened a new adult education center in Huntington that will offer free training in everything from college preparation to financial literacy and parenting.

The Herald-Dispatch reports that enrollment at the Center for Community Learning and Advancement is open every day for the next two weeks. After that, the center will have open enrollment each Friday.

Coordinator Ginny Sellerds says full-time instructors will function as mentors and case workers.

The center is owned and operated by Catholic Charities West Virginia, and all of the classes are free. Each class will have between eight and 10 people.

A Georgetown University report says that by 2020, 65 percent of all of the jobs in the U.S. will require post-secondary education or some other training beyond high school.
