The project enhanced staff capacity to teach about clean energy and provide informed guidance on local clean energy career and training opportunities.
The overarching goal of this project is to increase access, persistence, and success of adult high school equivalency, ESOL, and college transition learners in postsecondary education and training. This project is piloting and refining a replicable, scalable system-wide model for mentoring Boston-area adult learners as they transition to postsecondary education and training.
