In the last several years as Principal Consultant of Gold Apple Services, I have had the wonderful opportunity to be involved with several interesting, important projects. My more recent work has included working with Family League of Baltimore by managing the Maryland Literacy Hotline and reviewing materials for readability by low literacy adults, editing for Community Sciences, writing for Professional and Scientific Associates, and performing qualitative analysis for an adult education research project.
Lately, Gold Apple Services is expanding into consulting for nonprofit organizations who want to establish an education program or take that program to the next level of excellence. In this effort, my colleague, Sonia Socha, has agreed to be an Associate Consultant with Gold Apple Services. Sonia has a wealth of expertise and experience in the adult education and workforce field. You can read more about her at her LinkedIn site www.linkedin.com/pub/sonia-socha/28/383/b3 or under About Us on the Gold Apple Services website.
Our current project has been pulling together an awareness campaign for the Maryland Association for Adult, Community and Continuing Education (MAACCE) called GO GREEN for Adult Literacy for the National Adult Education and Family Literacy Week (September 21-25). So far, GO GREEN has involved coordinating various adult education programs in their GO GREEN efforts with wristbands, mini-toolkits with sample letter to the editors and social media posts, and more! Meanwhile, here is a photo of Sonia and me in GREEN for Adult and Family Literacy Awareness.
