The week of September 22–26, 2014 is National Adult Education and Family Literacy External link opens in new window or tab (AEFL) Week. The Commission on Adult Basic Education External link opens in new window or tab (COABE) would like your assistance in making 2014 an outstanding year for celebration of adult learner successes and to help increase the awareness of the need for the services the adult education field provides.

"We would like to highlight student successes from every region of the country," says COABE President, Jackie Taylor. "We are looking to showcase students who together with their teachers and sponsoring programs have overcome barriers and obstacles to achieve success. Because of the variety of services adult educators provide and the diversity of needs as well as diversity of the population we serve, we want to be mindful to represent a complete picture of adult education nationwide. We can't do this as effectively without your help."

COABE has created a page on their Web site with the information you will need to submit student success stories. They are encouraging the use of social media to raise awareness and have provided recommended hashtags and activities.

The deadline for submissions is September 15, 2014.

"We can and do make a difference in the lives of students every day. Thank you to the National Coalition for Literacy for working with Members of Congress to secure resolutions dedicating AEFL Week, and thank you for your continued part in this success."
