Coordinating College Success Services for Adults

There are almost 300,000 adults over the age of 25 living in central New Mexico without a college degree or certificate.

We Are Removing Barriers

Through an initiative called Graduate! ABQ, we're bringing together New Mexico Workforce Connection, Central New Mexico Community College (CNM), the University of New Mexico (UNM), Youth Development Inc, and the City of Albuquerque to develop an adult student support system to help them get into college, figure out how to pay for it, then help make a personal connection with the appropriate person at the college of their choice.
