Adult Education Transforms Lives

Part 1 of the We Are Adult Learners series, featuring stories from adult education students originally published for The Change Agent.

These stories illustrate the many ways in which adult education helps adults of all ages build a better future for themselves and their families. Adult education builds skills and confidence that enable adults to set and pursue goals they often thought unachievable. Skilled teachers and a supportive learning environment are key in this process.
