Do you want to earn your GED®, receive U.S. Citizenship, go to college, or get a better job? ProJeCt can help!

ProJeCt offers free classes for adults who want to improve their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. Our programs will prepare you to succeed in work, school, and life.

Classes are offered both day and evening in our dedicated literacy center, conveniently located in Downtown Easton. The programs are designed to meet the needs of all languages and literacy levels through one-on-one tutoring and classroom instruction. ProJeCt’s staff of qualified teachers is committed to helping you achieve your goals.

ProJeCt will support you every step of the way, as you transition from our classes to postsecondary education or employment. All instruction is provided in the real-life context of reading job applications, bus schedules, medicine bottles, doctor instructions, etc. Adults enrolled in literacy classes may also take advantage of our Social Services as they qualify.

ProJeCt offers:

  • Adult Basic Education (ABE): Instruction in basic skills, such as reading, writing, arithmetic, and other skills, required to function in society, offered to persons 16 years of age or older who are not regularly enrolled, full-time pupils in an accredited secondary school. Practical life skills and preparation for postsecondary education and employment is emphasized.
  • General Educational Development (GED®): A GED® can pave the way for job opportunities, or lead to acceptance into job training or college courses. ProJeCt offers no cost instruction to prepare students to successfully master the subjects on the GED® test. Our literacy center is also a certified GED® test center.
  • English as a Second Language (ESL): Instruction in English language skills for non-native speakers. Students are pre-tested and placed at the appropriate level of instruction. Students acquire academic English skills (reading, writing, and grammar), build their vocabulary, and increase conversation, listening comprehension and life skills.
