Program Helps Older Kentuckians Go Back to School

Mature students learning computer skills

AARP’s Comebackers project is reaching out to older workers who may need further education to compete for better-paying jobs. 

The program helps Kentuckians find education opportunities, such as completing a high school equivalency GED test, a college certification program or an associate’s or bachelor’s degree. 

To find free adult education services so you can work toward a GED, with the possibility of earning a college certificate or some college credit at the same time, go to kyskillsu.ky.gov.

The state has also created scholarships for adult learners. Visit WorkReadyKentucky.com or call 833-711-9757 for information about tuition-free certificates and two-year degrees through local community colleges and other local institutions.

The AARP program is also seeking volunteer ambassadors to connect people with resources. Email kyaarp@aarp.org or visit aarp.org/kycomebackers to learn about volunteering or to get help.
