We have GED classes to instruct students as they work to pass their GED/HISET exam.

Beginning in May 2017, the York County Literacy Council extends its services to become the HiSET® High School Equivalency (paper-based) test site in York County. To register for testing or for more information about HiSET visit www.hiset.ets.org

Health literacy, computer literacy, financial literacy and workplace literacy is also taught in classes and through workshops. We also train volunteer tutors to provide one-to-one literacy training for adult students. We teach both native born adults as well as English as a Second Language Students.  It is estimated there are approximately 40,000 adults in York County who are functionally illiterate. YCLC services are free and confidential.
