Adult Education & Literacy Programs
South Dakota has programs and funds available to help you get to the next step. Through the Adult Education and Literacy Program (AEL), adults can learn basic skills needed to achieve their career and academic goals. AEL providers across South Dakota offer classes in:
- General Educational Development (GED) preparation
- English as a Second Language (ESL)
- Skills training
- Career readiness
The AEL classes are based on learners’ needs and interests, and they provide an open and stimulating learning environment. AEL’s skills training and career preparation can help students succeed in interviews, earn promotions or continue their education. With student-driven courses, AEL classes help learners reach their goals.
Note: You are not eligible for these services if already enrolled in a college, so make sure to connect with one of these programs as soon as possible to access all the available resources. This support could be life changing.
