Dollar General Literacy Foundation and the Ad Council are proud to partner on a national public service advertising (PSA) campaign that aims to help high school dropouts get started on the road to their GED® Diploma.
These young adults know they need to get their GED Diploma but need to be reminded they can do it. The multi-media campaign is scheduled to launch in July 2010 and all materials will be available in English and Spanish. View the TV PSA.
All PSAs will feature a toll free number 877-38-YOURGED and a new website www.yourged.org, where people can find free referrals to local GED programs and information on the GED Diploma process. The program referrals come from a new comprehensive database developed in collaboration with National Center for Family Literacy and ProLiteracy.
We encourage you to extend the reach of the campaign through your communications. For Frequently Asked Questions about the campaign materials and usage, please refer to this document. For more information on the referral database, please visit www.nationalliteracydirectory.org.
