The ACCE Fellowship for Education Attainment assists chamber executives as they mobilize efforts to improve the birth-to-career education pipeline in their communities. Selected executives engage in an education and workforce development deep dive involving best practices in education attainment, interaction with national experts and inclusion in a strong peer-to-peer network. Throughout, fellows develop and execute plans for specific educational attainment objectives in the form of a regional action project (RAP).
Fellows identify a topic for their RAP during their first in-person meeting, then outline the major challenges and opportunities, develop strategies to address these issues (that might include a timeline, costs, organizational and leadership needs, and outcomes) and finally report on what they learned. In many cases, these RAPs represent the planning stages of an on-going, long-term initiative.
