In the United States, World Education supports older youth and adult learners by strengthening the educators, organizations, and systems that serve them. World Education is a national leader in building the adult education system's capacity to provide high-quality instruction and advising for adult learners. We collaborate with a wide range of governmental and nongovernmental partners to provide training, project design and management, resource development, and research grounded in program contexts. When adult learners further their education, they can improve their career options, advocate for their communities, and support their children's academic success.
