Adult learners are a tremendous untapped asset in literacy and workforce development programs. Working as peer mentors, tutors, counselors, and advocates, GED and ESOL graduates can dramatically improve the outcomes for students as well as programs. Alumni are also helping their peers transition to and succeed in college and career training.
The Missing Piece is a new documentary highlighting three initiatives in New York City that build on the leadership potential of adult learners: The Mayor's Office Transition to College Internship (T2C), IMPACT and the Future Now GED Program at Bronx Community College, and the Adult Education Alumni Alliance.
