AFSCME Free College program offers “new hope” for member’s family

In addition to free associate degrees, AFSCME is now offering its Free Bachelor’s Degree Completion Program permanently!

This is actual free online education that is designed to fit into the busy schedules of hardworking AFSCME members AND their families.

Debbie Jenkins is a member of AFSCME Local 1985 and employee of the PA Department of Revenue. Her daughter Ashley was recently furloughed and told her mom she wished she could earn some college credits, but feared it was not a good time.

Debbie told Ashley about her union’s Free College Benefit, and Ashley is now earning her Business Management Degree and a Certificate in Cyber Security.

“It’s giving her a new hope on an otherwise gloomy situation,” Debbie said.
