Wondering why you should finish your diploma today? Have you heard of FinishYourDiploma.Org? Back to school may mean lunchboxes and school buses to you, but to many Americans, it means returning to finish high school. Did you know that 29 million American adults have not received their high school diploma? My son and his fiance just graduated high school and are looking for jobs. It’s hard enough to find one with just a high school diploma. I cannot imagine how difficult it would be without one. I’m sharing this information with you today because it’s important to me.
Why You Should Finish Your Diploma Today
Without a high school diploma, opportunities in today’s economy can be limited. In fact, nearly 30% of adults with household incomes at or below the federal poverty line do not have a high school credential. Since the campaign initially launched in 2010, FinishYourDiploma.Org has helped more than 800,000 adults in all 50 states find free test-prep classes in their area.
In most communities, local nonprofits and literacy centers are able to offer free classes to help adults prepare for the GED, TASC, or HiSET high school equivalency tests. For many adults, earning a high school equivalency diploma is the first toward a college degree, better job, or brighter future. I wanted to share a few new PSAs that address the tension felt by many adult learners to study while managing family, home and work responsibilities.

While providing for your family and better job opportunities are big motivators to earn a high school equivalency, it can feel daunting for adults who think they’ll have to face that challenge alone. But help is available!
The FinishYourDiploma.org website provides information about free classes and other support programs to help you.
