A C2C counselor assists participants in character development so they may begin the path to a better and brighter future and so much more:

  • Increase basic literacy skills (if needed)
  • Complete the Work Ethics Training Certificate
  • Complete an GED/HSE (if needed)
  • Complete work experience through an internship
  • Enter college, military or become employed

C2C Youth Program


The AE department at NEMCC offers FREE preparation classes for individuals who want to attend college, find a better job, or support their families. On July 1st, 2016, the AE Department of NEMCC began offering multiple pathways to the HSE diploma. The Mississippi Community College Board AE Office will issue a HSE Diploma for anyone who completes the General Education Development (GED® ) test or the High School Equivalency Test (HiSET).

At NEMCC adult educational advancement opportunities are now greater than ever with multiple HSE testing options which supply a much-needed HSE diploma as well as College and Career Readiness (CCR). CCR standards align with the entry-level expectations of colleges, workforce training programs, and employers to ensure that our students are equipped with the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in college, career, and life.

  • According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the unemployment rate is 3.5% greater for individuals who have not obtained a HSE.
  • According to the BLS, individuals who have no HSE make $343.00 less in weekly wages.
  • A recent study conducted by the Washington State Board for Community and State Colleges states that a HSE is directly related to an individual’s ability to earn a “family sustaining wage.”
