Calling All Adult Education Directors, Instructors, and Student Leaders


With generous funding provided by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation, scholarship funding is available for students to attend the Ambassador Training Program at the COABE National Conference on Sunday, March 25th, as well as the first-ever sessions specifically designed for adult learners. Fill out the the Ambassador Training survey for your team. The student identified in your survey response will get a COABE scholarship covering travel and registration for the whole conference, including the preconference Ambassador Training! 

COABE is now offering new student membership for only $5. There is also a Tier 1 option, which offers free membership. Click here for more details.

Reminder about expectations and logistics:

  • The train the trainer session is designed to build teams of adult basic education student leaders and staff leaders (teacher and/or administrator) who are prepared to be advocates at the federal level.
  • The main goal is to develop student voice and leadership in advocating for adult basic education. 
  • Your program should identify at least one student, one state association member/leader, and one program staff member (e.g. teacher) to attend the training. 
  • The follow-up activities should include local trainings to help more students develop these skills and attend COABE Capitol Hill days in Washington, D.C.

We hope to see you and your adult students at this year's national conference!
