ADVOCACY

More than 1.2 million Floridians lack a high school diploma or struggle daily with low literacy skills. We monitor legislation, rules and regulations, and encourage those which are beneficial to adult, literacy, technical, community and workforce education.

Thank you for donating!

Like many organizations, ACE has seen a dramatic downturn in funding over the past several years.  And while we believe that adult education has never been more important to the economic viability or our state, we need your help to ensure that we can continue to provide services to our ACE membership and to the adult education students statewide.

To help guarantee the future of ACE of Florida, we have established the Adult and Community Educators of Florida Foundation (a 501 C-3).  The ACE of Florida Foundation will help us to expand our resources, increase our advocacy efforts, boost our visibility and enhance our professional development training opportunities.
