Advancing equity through education to
support adults, their families, and communities to thrive

Unlocking opportunity with education

We improve the availability, quality, and capacity of adult education and workforce programs to respond to evolving economic and community contexts and advance equity.

Our efforts to reduce systemic barriers to opportunity are grounded in the experience of adults and communities left behind due to economic inequity, racism, and xenophobia.

We drive sustainable solutions collaboratively and strengthen systems through professional development, coaching, technical assistance, demonstration projects, research, advocacy, and evaluation.

We help adults develop skills to ensure healthy and fulfilling individual and collective futures.

We collaborate with a range of public and private institutions and community organizations and pride ourselves on being a partner that conducts high-quality work with integrity and a deep commitment to equity and inclusion.
