— SHAMOKIN — Families in Shamokin now have a new place to go where parents and children can learn together.  

Located at 2 E. Arch St. on the third floor of the Northumberland County Career & Arts Center, the Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit (CSIU) Adult and Family Learning Center offers free educational services to families with children from birth to third grade.

Parents with or without a high school diploma receive instruction in basic and advanced skills to help them pass the GED®, assist with the transition into the workforce or prepare for entry into a college or training program.

The Family Literacy program also provides early childhood education, parent education and interactive literacy activities that include both parents and children. The program addresses the educational needs of the whole family, and supports parents as they prepare their children for success in school.

Adult education classes are also available in Shamokin for individuals who wish to achieve their education and career goals.

To schedule an appointment for an orientation and assessment, call 509-2246.
