On March 20, 2014, Transitions to College, GED, ABE, and ESOL students attended the Adult Literacy Awareness Day at the State House. This was a very inspiring event for them, as they got to see first-hand how educators and students can come together to ask for more funding for adult education. Students prepared for this by writing letters to their state representatives and delivering them at the State House. At the event, they heard many students, teachers, program leaders, and a state representative speak about the importance of continuing their education as an adult.
