Learning shouldn’t end when we pass school age. And it doesn’t have to. Especially if you weren’t able to complete school, there are huge benefits to continuing your education into adulthood. With adult education possibilities through CHP, you don’t need to wonder what next steps in learning to take. They’re all right here for you to choose from. Let’s take a look at a few of the benefits that come from taking these adult education opportunities.

Open up new career paths

Certificate programs can help you learn valuable tools for succeeding at work. And they can give your resume a boost, too, showing your willingness to learn. Certificates might include money skills, workplace skills, or computer skills. See what’s available through CHP.

Meet your education goals

Maybe you’ve always dreamed of going to college, you weren’t able to graduate high school, or you’re hoping to get a professional certificate that can help you get a job. No matter what your education goals are, CHP’s adult education programs can help you work toward them.

Find greater independence

CHP offers help studying for the driver’s exam. You don’t have to be held back from opportunities by not having your license. A driver's license can open up new jobs, less expensive housing farther than walking distance from work, and timesaving for you and your family.

Get connected with the Device and Data Incentive

Not having a computer or internet access can be a big barrier to learning. If you don’t have the tools to get online where you live, you might qualify for the device and data incentive through CHP. This program offers a loaned iPad to participants (which you can keep if you spend 48 hours furthering your education and career), as well as four months of internet access. Find out if you’re eligible, and apply!

Get your HiSET

If you didn’t graduate high school on time or you had to drop out, that’s okay. With the High School Equivalency Test (HiSET)—similar to the GED—you can demonstrate your knowledge and earn your high school equivalency. This is important for many employers, and you never know what opportunities taking the HiSET might bring you.

Learn your own way with one-on-one tutoring

Not everyone learns best in a traditional classroom setting. If that’s the case for you, or even if you just want a little extra help, try tutoring. CHP can offer help studying for the driver's license exam, and you can also get personalized tutoring for the HiSET. Sometimes, it’s just about finding the learning style that works best for you.

Find help finding jobs

It can be difficult to know what all the options are when you’re looking for work. Sometimes there might be something you could improve that you aren’t even aware of, whether it’s your resume or interviewing skills. And sometimes, you just need help seeing what your strengths are. Career support through CHP can put you down a new path or strengthen your steps on the track you’re on.

Get guidance getting into college

The process of applying to and paying for colleges can be complicated. But don’t let that keep you from going. From improving your study skills and classroom learning to seeking financial aid and applying to schools, get advice and assistance through CHP.

Adults aged 16 and up are eligible for these CHP programs in Livingston and West Yellowstone. People ages 16, 17, and 18 will need proof that they have withdrawn from school, but CHP staff can help you get documentation.
