Mission-aligned Affiliates

Strada Education Network’s mission-aligned affiliate organizations help prospective, current, and former students connect education and work. Engaging with postsecondary institutions, employers, and workforce/economic development offices, we support learners and workers throughout their careers.

Strada’s affiliate organizations demonstrate a deep commitment to Strada’s mission of strengthening the pathways between education and the workforce. Our affiliates offer solutions to support students and the institutions that serve them, and to help employers with talent needs now and in the future.

Working across our growing network, we aspire to amplify our influence through each affiliate as they support students, institutional partners and employers. Each year, we reach millions of students and their families and serve thousands of institutions of higher education, helping students to pursue a purpose-driven education and supporting their success in school and in their careers. Our collaborative approach with employers and workforce and economic development offices provides student talent now and helps build a talent pipeline for the future.

Strada’s unique structure, including our nonprofit status, ensures that we can focus on learners and their success while supporting employers’ needs and investing in innovative solutions to strengthen education-employment pathways for the future.
