Adult Transitions to College

Supporting Adult Education Students as they Transition to College

Currently only five percent of adults who complete adult basic education transition to college.

We Break Down Barriers

We are working together to help those adults break down the barriers that keep them from increasing their education.

Our work includes assisting the State of New Mexico with its Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) plan to ensure that adults have access to information on college and career exploration opportunities.

We are also working together at the local level to determine what actions we can take as a community, such as sharing resources and connecting with employers to increase internships for adult education students.
