Are you looking for your next professional project after EPFP?

Do you have an innovative idea that promotes the intersection of education and adult career pathway programs for your community or on a larger scale?

Do you want $100K for it? 

We are most successful when we can build the capacity of our students and their families at the same time. While education is typically seen as a “way out”, too many adults who do not have any formal postsecondary training or education are unable to enter, persist, and complete programs because of non-educational barriers such as childcare, housing, criminal records, health issues, and social supports. Thanks to  generous funding from the ECMC Foundation, the Institute for Educational Leadership in partnership with the Coalition for Adult Basic Education and the National Association of State Directors of Adult Education is addressing  this issue in a creative way, but we need your help!

We believe that to collaborate is to innovate—and great innovation takes diverse minds to solve complex community issues. That is why we are launching an Adult Career Pathway Design Challenge as part of our Minds that Move Us initiative. With your unique knowledge about how adult students learn best, the unique challenges their communities face and potential barriers that may arise, you can ensure that innovative career pathway program ideas help adult students to enter, persist, and successfully complete with credentials that enable them to start or advance in their careers. It is our hope that you will consider applying for this challenge and/or encourage your staff, colleagues, and families to; and to help us pass the word about this exciting opportunity.
