Stevens-Henager College Launches the Good Neighbor Initiative

Providing FREE education, training and development to help our communities
Salt Lake City, UT (March 01, 2012)  —

Stevens-Henager College, a leading provider of on-campus and online higher education, announced today the launch of its Good Neighbor Initiative, created to strengthen communities by providing free education, training and development opportunities to help all Utahns improve their lives. Some of the Good Neighbor Initiative's free courses and workshops include GED® test preparation, nurse assisting, phlebotomy, basic computer skills and how to get a job workshops.*

This initiative addresses a crucial juncture of education and workforce in America. The Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts that by 2014, 24 of the 30, or 80 percent, of the fastest-growing occupations in the United States will require some level of postsecondary training or education.1 Individuals with a GED credential benefit from a personal income nearly 30 percent higher than those with less than a high school diploma.2 By offering a free GED preparatory course and even paying for students to take the GED exam, the Good Neighbor Initiative supports workers in their first step toward obtaining these opportunities.

"At Stevens-Henager, we recognize that America requires skilled workers and we are committed to finding solutions that meet the needs of both our students and our communities," said Eric Juhlin, CEO of CollegeAmerica Services, Inc., which encompasses Stevens-Henager College. "We designed the Good Neighbor Initiative as a way to help people in our community get education and training that can improve their lives, help them support their families and contribute to the economy. Since our soft launch in 2011, we have already seen this initiative create meaningful changes in the lives of many people."

More than 10,000 people have already investigated courses and workshops offered through this initiative, creating numerous success stories. In addition to GED certificate preparation, courses include nurse aid and CNA exam preparation, phlebotomy, computer skills and employment workshops. Courses are offered selectively at campuses in Utah, Idaho, Colorado, Wyoming, Arizona and California.3
