BACKPACK BRIDGE CLUB: From GED® to ATC
The Backpack Bridge Club is a student organization whose purpose is to provide transitioning students with the encouragement, motivation, and support they need to feel confident as they begin working towards their college goals. The Backpack Bridge Club allows participants who have transitioned from the Adult education GED program, to postsecondary education at Athens Technical College to serve as ambassadors and spokespersons for the Adult education program, along with serving as mentors to incoming GED graduate students. The Backpack Bridge Club provides participants with leadership and volunteer opportunities on campus, in the community and through-out our ten county service area. This is done while serving as a liaison between adult education faculty, students and the Vice President of Adult Education.
To be considered for selection, students must be GED graduates and in good disciplinary standing in their programs of study and Athens Technical College. If selected for membership your attendance is required at the regularly scheduled meetings and with events for which your service is needed.
