Allegheny County Jail Adult Basic Education

The ABE/GED Program provides literacy and adult basic education classes for inmates within the jail facilities. The program staff offers classes in GED preparation and testing, computer literacy, and basic academic skills, as well as financial literacy and pre-apprenticeship test preparation. This program focuses on developing those life skills that ease the transition into the workplace. Individual employability skills will be enhanced through activities such as basic communication, interviewing, teamwork, and problem-solving skills. The staff will provide guidance and support as individuals move into and adjust to real work and life experiences.
