Education and Training Resources for Women in Recovery

Earn Your GED

A high school diploma or Graduate Equivalency Diploma (GED) is an important requirement for many jobs. GED programs are for people who can read at a 9th grade level or better. Some GED programs are available in Spanish or other languages. If you do not read at a 9th grade level or better or if you have trouble with math, you might be required to take classes to improve your reading, writing, or math skills.

College is also an option for many women entering recovery.  From community colleges to four-year Universities, there are many choices available to help prepare you for your career.  The first, and biggest, step is finding the trade school, college or university right for you!

Mapping Your Future
Find a Community College (Searchable by State)
Find a 4-year University (Searchable by State)
Find a Trade-School (Searchable by Category or State)

Finding ways to pay for a 2- or 4-year College or trade school can be overwhelming.  Luckily, there are many financial aid opportunities available, as well as resources to help point you in the right direction.

If you are planning on receiving federal aid to help cover the costs of attending college, you must complete a FAFSA Form.  This form will determine how much money you will receive through grants, scholarships, work-study, and loans while taking into account how much you can afford to pay for the year.   This form must be completed by anyone expecting to receive federal aid to attend college.
