As we head into the second year of living with the realities of COVID-19, I think about how we have changed and adapted as a society. The twenty-first century technology skills that we all tried to learn, became necessary to function in a socially distant world. Some of the highlights are our ability to offer more programming remotely, both academic and enrichment. We are thrilled that we have been able to have classes in person as well. It has been so nice to see everyone again.
You may have noticed that ‘help wanted’ signs are everywhere and wages are increasing. Opportunities for free or low cost training are everywhere.

We would love to help you decide your next steps and find training opportunities.
The gentleman on the cover of our brochure, Adam Tarsetti, earned his diploma here at Gray-New Gloucester Adult Education last year. The photo of Adam serves as a great reminder that, ‘it’s never too late to graduate.’ If you have a goal to earn your diploma, it’s never too late to reach your goals.
We look forward to working with and serving the communities of Gray and New Gloucester. As always, if you have a craft or special talent that you would like to share with the community, please feel free to reach out.
We look forward to seeing you this year!
