Adult Education Student Support Fund

This is an extremely difficult time for South Dakota residents including the Adult Education students served at the Career Learning Center. Many of our students have families to take care of, but recently have lost income due to COVID-19.

The Career Learning Center has created an Adult Education Student Support Fund for our students studying for their GED in the communities of Belle Fourche, Sturgis, Spearfish, Rapid City, Custer, and Hot Springs. The CLC recently received an anonymous $5,000 donation to this fund with a challenge to generate $5,000 in matching funds. The John T. Vucurevich Foundation met this match, bringing the fund to $10,000.

Many people have indicated they would like to be able to help during this time of crisis. This is an excellent opportunity to do so. If you would like to donate to the fund, please know:

  • There are NO administrative fees taken from your donation.
  • Funds are used for emergencies for our students; such needs as rent assistance, utilities, fuel, bus passes, employment uniform/attire, employment tools, education/training materials and supplies.
  • Guidelines have been established. Click here to view the Adult Education Student Support Fund Guidelines.
  • A separate account has been established solely for these funds and strict check and balance systems are in place for this fund.
