Washington, PA – Blueprints’ (formerly Community Action Southwest) Adult Education & Family Literacy Programs are enrolling new students/families. The Adult Education program assists residents age 17 or older to obtain their GED and/or increase their learning skills in order to secure employment or attend a trade school or college.

The Family Literacy Program helps parents improve parenting and literacy skills so they can better help their children achieve educational gains.

A full schedule of classes is in-place in Washington and Greene Counties. Classes are taught every Monday, Wednesday and Friday each week at the Greene, Mon Valley and Washington PA CareerLink sites. Additionally, Blueprints also offers classes in Canonsburg, Carmichaels and Bentleyville each week.

Upon enrollment and orientation, PA-Certified Instructors work with students to determine the appropriate level of classes they will attend in addition to establishing their weekly class schedule.

Students enrolled in the programs are also partnered with a trained case manager who will work with them on job development and trade school or college enrollment procedures. With the help of their case manager, students are able to explore their career options and overcome their barriers while being connected to some of the area’s largest employers and postsecondary schools.

Blueprints’ receives funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Education, Bureau of Postsecondary & Adult Education in addition to the Pennsylvania Department of Community & Economic Development to operate its Adult Education Program.
