Taking part in cross-sector partnerships and networks that are working for larger goals in your state or community can mean that adult education becomes a reliable partner, and will be remembered when funding and advocacy issues are at stake! Adult education practitioners in Rhode Island have been involved in innovative partnerships for a decade now: leading the way in some cases to realize collective impact. As a result, adult education is already at the table when politicians and community leaders look to address a new issue, and we are more and more counted on as critical partners.
The presenters will mix insights and descriptions of such initiatives, while engaging the audience to identify possible “opportunity initiatives” in their own communities and begin an action plan to bring home.
