Strategic Direction

Our Priorities

AlphaPlus recognizes the role of technology as an enabler for each citizen’s social well-being and economic sustainability. We’re advocates for fair and just access to resources that guarantees equal outcomes for groups and individuals.

AlphaPlus is a champion for the creative use of technology as an essential component in creating high-quality education.

As a system leader, AlphaPlus collaborates with the network of literacy and basic skills (LBS) providers, support organizations and regional networks to build technology-rich adult learning environments that empower literacy learners to successfully participate in lifelong and lifewide learning, both within and outside literacy programs.
