GED Prep Classes

CFR’s GED preparatory program operates as a sub-site of Cobb Adult Basic Education. Our classes are designed to meet the needs of the non-traditional student, and are offering in the evenings on Tuesday and Thursday. Students work at their own pace individually with a tutor or in small groups. If interested in enrolling, please call our GED Instructor at 770-428-2601 ext. 257.

Employment Readiness

Our Employment & Education Case Managers provide an individualized program to each of our clients. We focus on counseling and instruction in interviewing skills, job search and retention skills, and resume preparation.

Life Skills Training

Our program offers classes on a variety of life management skills, including topics such as financial literacy, budgeting, time management, parenting, child development, conflict resolution, stress management, and building better personal relationships.

Free childcare is offered Tuesday and Thursday evenings for parents attending CFR classes. Children can be dropped off beginning at 6:30 pm at Sheltering Arms Early Education and Family Center, located behind CFR at the rear of the Mansour Conference Center building.
