network 2018 - HIGHLIGHTS
Over 500 teachers, community leaders, and program administrators came together for NETWORK 2018 to exchange new ideas for instruction and engagement, to celebrate the passion and commitment of their colleagues and peers, and to underscore the importance of adult education to the Commonwealth’s shared future.

What does it take to be an ABE leader?
Leadership can sometimes be a complicated art, sometimes it’s a simple act.
MCAE is asking you to be a leader - by joining us and by combining your voice with ours on behalf of adult educators and students here in Massachusetts. For more than two decades, in collaboration with ABE leaders across the Commonwealth, MCAE has sought to promote public policies that provide the resources necessary to deliver high-quality educational services, that improve working conditions for program staff, and that enhance the quality of life for adult learners and their families.
Our work can only continue with your support, however. So, please, join MCAE and the organizations listed below by clicking here now.
