Abstract: 

The Colorado Success UNlimited (CO SUN) Initiative, commissioned by the Colorado Community College System (CCCS) Foundation, is a college prep program that moves GED graduates and adult learners forward, reduces remedial education, and builds confident, successful students. The overarching goal of CO SUN is to create innovative transition programs and practices to promote the successful transition of out-of-school youth to community colleges. The Digital Colorado Success UNlimited Toolbox contains resources developed by the CO SUN Initiative directly applicable to Adult Career Pathways programs. These resources include the following:

  • College Connection Program Implementation Guide – a how-to guide for administrators and program directors at  adult education centers and community colleges;
  • Navigator Manual –  a reference tool that  provides  information about on-going case management, and career exploration assistance;
  • Pedagogical Resources – instructional resources on critical thinking skills, math, reading/writing, study skills, and differentiated instruction;
  • Assessment Resources – diagnostic assessment resources (Accuplacer, GED, TABE); and
  • College and Career Readiness Resources – career assessment, career exploration, and goal setting resources as well as the college and career success course.
Benefits and Uses:

The overarching goal of CO SUN was to create innovative transition programs and practices to promote the successful transition of out-of-school youth to community colleges.
