Episode 2: “It Takes A Community”

What is your greatest accomplishment? Did you do it alone, or did you get help from your friends, family, or people in your community?

In this episode of CareerTech Horizon, we take a deep dive into Adult Basic Education, and share the stories of Oklahomans who turned their lives around, thanks to the right people helping, supporting, and advocating for them.

  • A mother, stressed from working dead-end jobs, who decided to go back to school, just as her child started her first day of school.
  • An adult-learning organization in Ardmore, expanding their reach in a short time, thanks to their enthusiastic staff, and the cereal boxes that immortalize their success stories.
  • How education plays an integral role in state inmates’ re-entry into society.
