Educational attainment impacts both individual incomes and community-wide prosperity. Only 45 percent of Alabamians have postsecondary credentials, while the projected demand in 2025 is 51 percent, according to the Alabama Workforce Council. To close this gap, Governor Kay Ivey set the Success Plus goal of adding 500,000 individuals with valuable postsecondary credentials to the state’s workforce.

In support of this goal, Alabama Possible, a statewide nonprofit organization, is convening the Alabama Education and Workforce Network focused on the transition from high school to and through postsecondary education. Alabama will join 20 states that have statewide college access networks.

The Alabama Education and Workforce Network will provide capacity building, technical assistance, consulting, workshops, training, advocacy, and research to educators, community-based organizations, and policymakers to drive equitable increases in postsecondary attainment.

Alabama Possible breaks down barriers to prosperity through education, advocacy, and collaboration to ensure that every Alabama high school graduate has the opportunity to pursue and complete a valuable postsecondary credential.

The Education and Workforce Network will make the transition from high school to gainful and meaningful employment a reality for Alabama’s youth.

On April 14-15, 2020, Alabama Possible will launch the network at a conference focused on college access and success which will be attended by Governor Kay Ivey and Lumina Foundation Chief Strategy Officer Danette Howard, and 200 college access and success professionals, workforce development managers, and business leaders.
