Empowering the communities we serve through education

A Different Approach to Education

The Good Neighbor Initiative is a charitable initiative that provides no-cost educational resources to the members of communities in five different U.S. states. Among other things, we offer GED® test prep courses, career skills workshops, and college scholarship programs at no cost to community members. We’re also involved in a variety of local charitable events at local college campuses.

Why do we do all these things? It’s simple, really. We believe everyone deserves a shot at a better life, and we believe that the best way to get that shot is through education.

test prep

For one reason or another, many people are unable to finish high school, and it’s usually because of circumstances beyond their control. For them, finding a decent job or going to college can be a real struggle—if not completely impossible.

At the Good Neighbor Initiative, we strive to help community members by providing no-cost GED® test prep courses. We provide everything at no cost to the student, including instruction, learning materials, and computerized practice tests. We even pay for the GED® test fee! We do all this to help combat unemployment and to help community members go to college.

College scholarships

The Good Neighbor Initiative also offers a wide range of scholarship* programs to help community members go to college. These include scholarships for first-time-degree students, single parents, minority groups, and many other types of students. These scholarships aren’t based solely on grades or previous test scores.

For those who pass their GED® test through one of our no-cost prep courses, we even have our "Build a Better Future" Scholarship, which awards students with $3,000 toward an Associate’s or a Bachelor’s degree at one of three colleges: Stevens-Henager College, CollegeAmerica , or California College San Diego.

"Not having my high school diploma was holding me back from getting a good job. When I heard about this no-cost GED® test preparation on the radio, I had my doubts. But I was happy to find out I really didn't have to pay a cent! Now I'm working my way up in a new carrer."
