Serving Adult Learners. Collaborative Approaches in Five Communities.
Barton, Stephanie Lang
This volume contains descriptions of five community work education councils that have broadened their agendas from a focus on youth issues to include serving adult learners by improving adults' access to education and training and by improving the articulation between work and learning institutions that serve adults in the community. Included in the volume are case studies of the following work education councils: The Charleston Trident Work Education Council in Charleston, South Carolina; the Worcester Area Career Education Consortium in Worcester, Massachusetts; the Sioux Falls Area Community Education Work Council in Sioux Falls, South Dakota; the Community Careers Council of Oakland, California; and the Greater Portland Work Education Council in Portland, Oregon. Each case study contains a history of the council that touches upon the following topics: the program setting, project objectives, major project activities, outcomes of the project, and future plans.
