National College Transition Network
(2009 - 2009)
College graduates can earn nearly double the wages of high school graduates and GED recipients. This income gap will increase in the coming years. In order for many adult literacy program graduates to succeed in postsecondary education, they need additional academic preparation and counseling. This grant from the Nellie Mae Education Foundation (NMEF) helped to expand World Education's National College Transition Network's (NCTN's) capacity to provide original publications, online resources and technical assistance to the adult education community. NCTN's membership spans the United States and a range of institutions representing schools systems, colleges, prisons, community-based organizations, and workplaces.
