Across the country, a push has been made to create a partnership between workforce development and adult education programs. By collaborating and providing services, the programs allow learners to have economic and educational success. By partnering, we are creating a skilled workforce. If we create partnerships, we can address the opportunity gap that exists. It also allows learners to address basic skill instruction and employment preparation to allow students to address the needs of local employers.

How do you “”sell”” a grassroots program seated in ABE culminating in knowledge and skills to promote community recovery? Collaboration inside and outside the classroom gives the student a goal, increases motivation and self-efficacy, and fills the gap from underqualified to employment and apprenticeships.
