Think it’s too late to continue your education? Think again.
AARP Kentucky has launched a new initiative in partnership with The Graduate! Network called KY Comebackers. KY Comebackers provides guidance and resources through a set of “lifelong learning pathways”. These pathways direct adults in Kentucky to low-cost and no-cost options to complete a GED, Technical Certificate, Associate’s, or Bachelor’s degree in the Commonwealth. Earning a credential or completing a degree can help connect one to in-demand jobs in Kentucky or earn needed skills to move ahead in their career.
