You may not realize how much influence you hold when it comes to promoting adult education. As educators and administrators on the ground level, you watch your students work hard and reach milestones every day. You watch them achieve their goals. You see their confidence boosted. You encourage them to move on to the next challenge in their lives.
That's why you are an ideal pick to help spread the word about adult education, and the perfect opportunity is coming up.
Adult Education Week is April 8-12. During this week, you can help bring awareness to adult education and its life-changing potential by sharing with your community what it is, the types of classes you offer and how it benefits the community.
Student testimonials drive the message home, so now is the right time to start identifying those students who have been able to reach their goals through adult education, whether the goal was to earn their GED and learn a career skill or complete their high school education so they could enroll in community college. Be ready to tell their stories - if they are open to that - to show the power of adult education.
The California Adult Education Program TAP will host a webinar about how to use social media to market your adult education program.
