Adult Education State Association Presidents and State Directors: Mobilizing your State for Educate & Elevate

Date: August 18th at 2:00 pm EDT
Time: 2:00 p.m. (EDT)

We are in full swing with the national Educate & Elevate Campaign to raise awareness among local elected officials, state legislators and federal officials of the importance of investing in Adult Education. As such, we’ve expanded our campaign website and the options that states have in participating in the campaign and mobilizing the adult education organizations throughout their respective states. This webinar details the options that various states are using to conduct a statewide campaign for investing in adult education. See models in action that various states have adopted from no-cost landing pages on their current websites and leveraging state-specific pages on the national campaign’s website, to full statewide campaigns. Get connected with your peers and help your state excel in getting national recognition.

Get Students, Colleagues, Family & Friends Involved

Here are three quick strategies to build funding support for adult education with your students, family, and friends.
  1. Share this link with your friends, family, and colleagues to send a ready-made support email to state and federal elected officials. The template automatically finds the right contact based on the zip code submitted.
  2. Share this link with your adult learners/students to send a ready-made support email template to their state and federal elected officials. Students can add their stories, sharing how adult education made a difference in their lives. This template also automatically finds the right contact based on the zip code submitted.
  3. Complete and print copies of this editable postcard  to bring to class, and have students sign and mail to your local, state and federal officials.
