After receiving a grant from the Grand Rapids Community Foundation, and with help from many volunteers,
Heartside Ministry was able to renovate an old storage room into becoming an education friendly classroom.
There are five parts to the GED test, and when a Heartside students passes one of the pretests, Heartside issues the $25.00 test fee to take the test at a testing center. When all five tests are officially passed, the student receives his/her high school equivalency degree.
As they work their way up through the tests, we mark their progress on the photo triangle which culminates with graduation.
