OACE and NYC Selected For Great Cities Summit
New York City was recently selected for the
Great Cities Summit
a federal initiative sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Vocational and Adult Education and the National Institute for Literacy. OACE is the lead New York City educational provider in this two-year initiative, which will convene five cities to address best practices for providing adult education in large urban areas. The five cities selected are Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, and New York City. The initiative will assess each city’s adult education needs, create action plans to address them, form supportive partnerships, and establish a network for collaborative peer learning. OACE's lead partners are the Literacy Assistance Center, NYC Department of Youth and Community Development, City University of New York, and Neighborhood Family Services Coalition.
