The ASVAB career exploration test is not just for students interested in military.

The ASVAB   (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) encourages students to explore a wide variety of careers in line with their interests and skills. While the program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense, this career exploration tool is for every student, 10th grade and up (ages 16 to 23), not just those interested in the armed forces.  There has never been a requirement that a test-taker with a qualifying score enlist in the military, and the test may simply determine personal aptitude at a particular career.
PVAEC offers an ASVAB Test Prep course which will help prepare you for this important test.  Call 564-6525 for more information.

Seasonal farmworkers and loggers can earn a stipend while getting a GED!

We are looking for migrant and seasonal farmworkers and loggers who are trying to earn their GED.  Through the Maine HEP grant you can be provided with:

  • Transportation & childcare reimbursement
  • Links to health and social services
  • A stipend of $100/week to cover personal expenses while attending GED classes
  • Books and school supplies

We’re looking for people who have done at least 75 days of farm or logging  work over the last 24 months.  Examples of qualifying farm work are blueberries, potatoes, dairy, poultry, tipping and logging. For logging, qualifying work includes: planting, trimming, de-limbing, and harvesting. As long as it’s not processing (working in a paper mill, chipping factory etc) it counts!

Immediate family members of the seasonal worker can participate. This includes: a spouse, a parent, step-parent, adoptive parent, foster parent, or anyone with guardianship, any person who claims the individual as a dependent on a Federal income tax return for either of the previous two years, or resides in the same household as the individual, supports that individual financially, and is a relative of that individual.

Please don’t hesitate to call to see if an activity counts. Anyone who qualifies for Migrant Education Programs and people who participate in the National Farmworker Jobs Program (NFJP) are automatically eligible.

Call PVAEC at 564-6525 to see if you qualify for this program!
