The Texas Peer Mentor Network, often referred to as TX-PMN, is a group of Adult Education providers that have come to learn from and with each other and share the collective knowledge and best practices within the Adult Education and Literacy communities. The goal of the Network is to support the push to align services within AEL providers, Workforce boards, and Community Colleges to successfully implement Career Pathways that increase student completion of certificate programs to gain access to middle-skilled jobs and wages.
Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) selected Amarillo College to lead the mentor network in June of 2017. With humble beginnings, the network began with six community colleges and has now expanded to eleven community colleges and one education service center.
The TX-PMN has selected five key tenets as the foundational pillars to successful implement career pathways at organizations.
