For adult learners looking to earn credentials or change careers

Adult Promise wants adult learners looking to earn post-secondary credentials, change careers, or learn a new trade or skill to be supported in their goals. MaineSpark’s Adult Promise track is a network of MaineSpark coalition agencies working on providing information, support and resources for those looking to start or finish a degree or certificate, switch industries or move up in their field. The Adult Promise hub is a digital resource to help you start thinking about and planning your next educational or career move, and the Navigator network can connect you with an experienced advising professional who can help find answers to your questions.
