RCLF partners with the Redwood City Public Library, Project READ, and the California State Library to offer adults the opportunity to earn an accredited high school diploma and career certificate online through Career Online High School. The program provides a limited number of scholarships to qualified adult learners who are looking to expand their career opportunities, prepare for workforce entry, and continue their education.
In February, the library recognized four new graduates, making a total of 10 individuals to date who have received their accredited high school diplomas and career certificates from the Redwood City Public Library. Kamilia, one of the new graduates, had not been in school for 39 years but wanted to get her high school diploma so she could get a good job and have a prosperous future. She successfully completed her COHS courses and has started classes at College of San Mateo. As soon as Kamilia earned her COHS diploma, she immediately began working with a Project READ tutor to support her educational goals at CSM.
RCLF is grateful to the Atkinson Foundation and to RCLF donors who enable us to support this program for Kamilia and others. If you know an adult who would like to earn their diploma for free, please go here for more information.
