The Gloversville and Amsterdam Literacy Zones will host orientation and screening sessions in January for adults ages 21 and older who want to prepare for the General Educational Development exam, a news release said.

Learners ages 18 to 20 will be admitted based on an interview with the teacher and as space and funding are available. The sessions are offered by the Hamilton-Fulton-Montgomery Board of Cooperative Educational Services' Adult Literacy Services, according to the news release.

The screening and orientation is a two-part session lasting three hours each. The Literacy Zone locations each will offer three opportunities to participate.

The Amsterdam Literacy Zone is located at the site of the Montgomery County Literacy Project at 1300A Riverfront Center (lower level, east end of building).

Sessions at that location will include the following:

Morning session: Jan. 2 and 7 from 9 a.m. to noon.

Afternoon session: Jan. 3 and 8 from noon to 3 p.m.

Evening session: Jan. 2 and 7 from 6 to 9 p.m.

The Gloversville Literacy Zone is located at 43-47 N. Main St. (Glove City Commons Building).

Sessions at that location will include the following:

Morning session: Jan. 3 and 8 from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Afternoon session: Jan. 2 and 7 from noon to 3 p.m.

Evening session: Jan. 2 and 7 from 6 to 9 p.m.

Students must attend both days of the sessions, arrive on time and be prepared to stay for the full three hours each day, the news release said.

During orientation, students will learn about the program, register for class and participate in assessment, the news release said.
