Leadership can sometimes be a complicated art, sometimes it’s a simple act.  MCAE is asking you to be a leader in ABE, and we’ve made it simple.

If your program receives state and/or federal adult basic education (ABE) funding, your services to the community depend, in large measure, on MCAE’s steadfast and effective advocacy.  However, MCAE’s capacity to continue this work is perilously at risk.

Due to the changing funding priorities of some of MCAE’s major, long-term supporters, we must now diversify our funding sources and raise $30,000 by June 30 to continue our services uninterrupted.

As we look out to the broader community to diversify funding, it is critical we can show that your program – a beneficiary of our services – supports us.

We are pleased to announce 2 new MCAE organizational memberships with new benefits.  We’re especially pleased that one of the new benefits includes priority service for MCAE member programs and their employees to receive discounted health insurance rates for Massachusetts plans through our partnership with the National Association of Socially Responsible Organizations.

To become a Leadership Circle or Organizational Member, simply click here for everything you need to join.  As you may remember from registering for Network, if you receive funding from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, your grant has a budget line for memberships. 

As always, MCAE also continues to welcome individual memberships to support our vital efforts.

MCAE is the unified voice for ABE in Massachusetts.  Please send your membership support today so we can continue to speak forcefully on your behalf without interruption. 

Being an ABE leader has never been easier.

We Are Unionizing--Get Involved!!

The Massachusetts Coalition for Adult Education and its partner, SEIU Local 509, are organizing ABE staff into a non-traditional, statewide union. We have filed and are in the process of passing new legislation giving us the right to bargain with the state over workload, conditions, and more. Learn about what it can mean for you and your program, and how you can help!
