Mok Inphouva, Youth Case Manager from the Western Arkansas Employment Development Agency (WAEDA) was here last week sharing information with our students. High school dropouts between the ages of 16-24 can receive free gas money to attend GED classes. If you are a high school dropout between the ages of 16-24, you are automatically eligible for the program. The purpose of WAEDA is to help students become more employable by financially supporting their education. Many students struggle finishing school because they don't have anyone to watch their kids, they don't have money to pay for gas, or they don't have reliable transportation. That's where WAEDA steps in, and they are here to fill in the gap and encourage students to finish their education. They also offer supportive services like paid work experience, assistance with books and tuition, and childcare. Find out more at http://www.waeda.org/
