About the Linked Learning Alliance

The Alliance is the engine that drives the Linked Learning movement. We are a national coalition of educators, employers, and community organizations dedicated to the success of young people. The Alliance was established in May 2008 and incorporated as an independent 501(c)(3) in July 2015.

Roles of the Alliance


We are the voice for Linked Learning - growing awareness of this approach and its positive results for youth, especially those in groups historically marginalized


We are the connector introducing Linked Learning to communities - expanding the number of places where young people thrive.


We are the catalyst for high-quality Linked Learning practice - helping schools achieve and sustain strong outcomes for all youth.


We are the champion for Linked Learning students and educators - bringing their realities and aspirations to the center of policy dialogue and design.
