Some weeks ago Granite Peaks Lifelong Learning welcomed dozens of adult students looking to learn about the next steps toward realizing their dreams.
In partnership with education and community organizations, the event provided these individuals an opportunity to learn about enrolling in higher education courses and obtaining employment in the community. There was even a chance for attendees to apply for financial aid through federal education grant programs.
This encapsulates what Granite Peaks Lifelong Learning is all about: helping adults turn things around for themselves with a hand up, not a hand out.
Granite Peaks Lifelong Learning is the Adult Education Program of Granite School District. The program operates day and nighttime courses at three campuses at Granite Connection High School, Granger High School, and Hunter High School. Coursework includes six GED preparation courses, basic high school completion, English as a second language, and specialized programs for refugees.
Granite Peaks works closely with other institutions to help adults achieve their education and career goals. During the College, Career & Community Readiness event, Granite Peaks welcomed representatives from Salt Lake Community College, Utah State University, Columbia College, The Core Foundation, Workforce Services Vocational Rehabilitation, Discover Card, and Amazon.
