Charitable Words Scholar Sarah Jernigan, a University of Cincinnati junior majoring in Communications, is on assignment at the East End Adult Education Center.
The Center provides General Education Development (GED) instruction, college preparation and job and career counseling. The center currently has 65 students enrolled and has served 7,600 students of ages 16 to 75 since its opening in 1974. The center turns no serious student away and its services are free.

Charitable Words:

Executive Director Adele Craft: “We’re in our 40th year of offering our programs to the community and really trying to make a difference in the lives of our students. Without a GED diploma, the doors to a career or college are closed. Many of our students have learning disabilities and have never had a positive experience in school, We strive to change this every day. Sarah is doing a great job!”

Sarah: “My experience at the East End Adult Education Center has been truly eye opening. I’ve enjoyed working with students learning. It’s great to be a part of an organization that is committed to students learning.”

Thanks, Sarah, for your important work. Thanks, Adele and your team, for your mentoring support. Readers, please support the East End Adult Education Center. And spread the Charitable Words about what they do for so many.

Charitable Words Scholars matches students interested in humanitarian work with nonprofit organizations in need of help. Currently, six scholars are on assignments in Greater Cincinnati and around the world.
