Literacy Network Receives National Grant from COABE

Literacy Network has been awarded the Incentive Grant by the Coalition on Adult Basic Education (COABE), a national organization dedicated to advancing the field of adult literacy. 

Sharon Bonney, the CEO of COABE, states, “I applaud Literacy Network, recipient of the Incentive Grant, for its outstanding contributions to our noble field of adult education! This prestigious grant is given for distinguished leadership, and this year’s winner truly exemplifies the values described in this national award.”  

Literacy Network has spearheaded a program focused on more deeply engaging and supporting the adult learners they serve. Their Student Services department includes five staff members who support all students with personalized wraparound services. 

Literacy Network aims to become more student-centered in its approach to education, starting with a new Student Advisory Board. COABE’s Incentive Grant will allow Literacy Network to create a space to amplify student voices. This program will empower adult learners by giving them a platform to voice their thoughts on agency growth, share their insights, and develop leadership skills. 

Autumn Jackson, the Grants Manager for Literacy Network, states, “We are excited about deepening adult students’ engagement, elevating their voices in our growth and development, as well as in the community, and we look forward to seeing how the Board evolves.” 

COABE’s mission is to inspire educators so adults succeed and communities thrive. The Coalition on Adult Basic Education provides leadership, professional development and advocacy for 79,000+ members in the field of adult education. COABE provide a variety of services, including annual national conferences, a peer-reviewed journal, advocacy tools and over 50 new instructional webinars each year.
