Connecting marginalized communities to better education and career opportunities

Via integrated education and workforce strategies, CAEL fosters partnership development that aligns postsecondary institutions and other learning providers, employers, and workforce and economic development organizations to better connect adult learners to careers and promote social and economic mobility.
