Current Move UP! Initiatives:
- Contextualized Learning Institute – Move UP! is supporting the design and implementation of IBEST and contextualized learning programs in the Capital Region. By offering a series of workshops on program design, current best practices and individualized technical assistance, Move UP! is helping programs throughout the region use strategies and resources that lead to success.
- Awareness Campaign – Move UP! is leading a campaign to raise awareness about the issue of adult literacy. Low literacy impacts everyone; it affects our economy, healthcare and future generations. By raising awareness, we can increase the number of adults who are receiving adult literacy services and help everyone in our community understand the importance of developing a skilled workforce and an educated citizenry.
- RBA Report Card - Move UP!’s Measurements & Reporting Committee has been working to publish an adult literacy report card for the Capital Region. The report will include data from adult education providers, workforce training programs, and community colleges.
- SPIRAL – By using the United Way 2-1-1 information and referral system, adults can find and enroll in a program that best-fits their needs, the first time they call. This initiative focuses on training program staff on providing a holistic assessment process that considers the barriers, strengths and educational needs of adult learners.
