Adult Education Visioning

The Future of Adult Education in Colorado

As a continuation of the feedback work begun at the CAEPA conference and the Directors Meeting, Adult Education Initiatives (AEI) is hosting conversations about the future of adult education in Colorado in January and February.

The four sessions will be structured the same way and will be held in different parts of the state in hopes that all adult education stakeholders can attend one of the sessions. The sessions will focus on what we can and want to do as a team to best serve the needs of adult learners in Colorado. Please share this information with your partners and stakeholders, all are welcome to attend!

Please register if you plan to attend a session. Email with any questions, and thank you to the programs that are generously providing space for the meetings.

The Need for High Quality Adult Education

In Colorado, over 300,000 adults do not have a high school credential, with 41 percent of those individuals having less than a 9th grade level of education. Of these individuals, 24 percent of them live below the poverty line. 74 percent of all jobs statewide will require some level of post-secondary education or training by the year 2020, well exceeding the national average.

Let’s brainstorm creative solutions to best serve the needs of adult learners in Colorado. All adult education stakeholders and interested parties are welcome!
