Welcome to the Virtual Academy

Resource Library
The Resource Library is a compendium of tools and resources selected specifically for the Accelerating Opportunity initiative. You can navigate the Resource Library by topic or via the tag cloud.

Accelerating Opportunity hosts periodic webinars on a range of topics, including model development and communications. These webinars are available to stream online or download.

Program Models and Examples
The models and examples draw on three main sources: JFF’s research and development in the Breaking Through initiative, colleges participating in Washington State’s Integrated Basic Education and Skills Training (I- BEST), and the “ideal” Accelerating Opportunity pathway that underlies this initiative.

Use this space to interact with the wide network of innovative practitioners and policymakers involved with the Accelerating Opportunity initiative. Share best practices, tap into the expertise of colleagues across the country, and actively participate in message board discussions.
