Networks – Digital Promise


The Adult Learning Initiative takes a collective impact approach by creating and participating in networks across the learn and work ecosystem.

The Beacon Project highlights communities using technology innovative ways to support adult learners. Our goal is to understand and amplify models and best practices to promote digital skills and life-sustaining opportunities for adult learners.

In addition, our team participates in several active networks, including:

  • CREATE Adult Skills Network, led by AIR in collaboration with Abt Associates, Jobs for the Future, and the EdTech Center @ World Education, Inc, is designed to facilitate the development, adoption, and evaluation of technology-supported interventions for adult foundational skills and academic attainment.
  • Digital Resilience in the American Workforce (DRAW), an initiative from JFF, World Education, and Safal Partners with support from OCTAE to better prepare adult education practitioners who support learners that struggle to fully engage in tasks that demand the use of digital technologies.
  • Digital US, a national coalition working to ensure that all people have technology skills and digital resilience to thrive in work and life.
  • The Retail Opportunity Network, a community of leaders focused on upskilling and learning, job success, and economic mobility for all people working in frontline sectors.
  • SkillUp, non-profit coalition made up of over 60 world-class training and education providers, tech firms, employers, and philanthropies dedicated to helping workers get rehired for high-growth jobs
  • The US Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s T3 Innovation Network, a group of more than 500 organizations exploring the emerging technologies and standards in the talent marketplace to create more equitable and effective learning and career pathways.
