At the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL), we collaborate with educators, employers and economic development organizations to equip adult workers and learners with the education and skills they need to sustain meaningful careers and contribute to their local economies and communities.

For more than 40 years, our national nonprofit membership organization has worked to create educational and economic opportunity for all adults while helping employers develop their existing workforce to remain competitive in a rapidly-changing economy.

CAEL develops services and solutions, providing consultative support and thought leadership resources for our partners and members. Whether offering best practices or creating partnerships, we have a single goal in mind: enhancing the educational and economic opportunities of adult learners.
