TAMPA, FL – Tampa Bay Hires’ youth program will host its first graduation event for GED completers on Friday, December 10, 2021. The event will run from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at 9215 N. Florida Ave., Suite 101, Tampa, FL 33612.

This event honors students who have completed their GED program through Tampa Bay Hires and earned their diplomas. Tampa Bay Hires is a program affiliated with CareerSource Tampa Bay (CSTB).

“We are excited to acknowledge young adults who have accomplished this huge milestone,” said CSTB’s CEO John Flanagan. “We want to host this event to showcase the successes of our young participants in the Tampa Bay Hires program.

” “GED completers typically do not have the opportunity to walk across the stage, and we are excited to change that for the students that work so hard in our program to complete and receive their diplomas,” says Jennifer Wilson CSTB Youth Program Director. “The Career Coaches of the CSTB program are passionate about working with these young adults, and any of their milestones or achievements is one for us. We are so proud of them and look forward to guiding them to their next accomplishment.

” This event is open to those with an invitation only. Individuals interested in attending can RSVP via email [email protected].

If you or someone you know is 16 to 24 years of age and needs assistance with attaining their GED and or going back to school, Tampa Bay Hires can get them on the right career pathway with tuition assistance, career coaching and guidance.

To get started, young adults can visit and complete the program pre-screen.
