Strada Collaborative

Our Mission

To empower all learners — and those who serve them — Strada Collaborative provides critical resources, educational support, and career experiences leading to equitable education and employment pathways.

About Strada Collaborative


Strada Collaborative, Inc. houses four parts: Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL), Education at Work (EAW), InsideTrack, and Roadtrip Nation under a single nonprofit organization.

Strada Collaborative, as an organizational structure, allows for better alignment and support for the nation’s growing needs facing today’s postsecondary providers, employers, foundations, government agencies, and learners. The four organizations that are part of the Collaborative, receive administrative support through shared services support from Strada. This support ensures that external funders’ contributions are increasingly allocated to mission advancement rather than indirect overhead costs.

Demonstrating a deep commitment to solutions on the ground

The organizations that are part of Strada Collaborative demonstrate a deep commitment to our mission of strengthening the pathways between education and the workforce. These organizations offer solutions for students, educational institutions, and employers who are seeking talent now and in the future.



A champion for adult learners, the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) creates education-career pathways that are recognizable and relevant to employers. CAEL informs, supports, and connects educators, employers, and policymakers so they can help working adults learn new skills throughout their careers.
