MI New Economy
The Reconnect Everybody In pathway will expand eligibility of the transformational Reconnect program to include adults 18 and over without a high school diploma or its recognized equivalent. The funding would support enrollment in a state-approved adult education program to earn a high school diploma or equivalent, and concurrent enrollment at a community college or a state-approved training program on Michigan Training Connect (MiTC). It would advance efforts to achieve the Sixty by 30 goal by reengaging adult learners and putting them on a pathway to a college degree or industry-recognized certificate valued by employers. Target groups that would be most impacted by the Reconnect Everybody In pathway include minorities, English language learners, working adults in low-paying jobs, returning citizens and adults living in rural areas of the state.
