If they want to get in to the program they will have to push a little and get their GED, and it isn’t very difficult. If they can’t apply themselves enough to get a GED then they don’t deserve to get in and they don’t want them working for them. This is a great opportunity.

Their application says that you need to have a GED, I think will turn away a lot of our guys….

This is so very needed. Fortunately Golan and Lipskier are addressing the key issue of employment in the frum world.

So do you pay to go, or get paid to go?

Or is it that you pay a nominal fee, to earn a degree that will ultimately pay big bucks?

I guess that’s what it is….

We are so proud of you! You are being proactive in addressing one of the most pressing issues in our community. Kol hakavod. My only concern is there not being enough spaces to meet demand. Hopefully other frum companies will follow this model and pave the way for success for our young men.
