About the Linked Learning Alliance

The Alliance is the hub for the Linked Learning movement. We serve a broad coalition of educators, employers, community organizations, and technical assistance providers that together bring Linked Learning to life for hundreds of thousands of young people. We inform and support their work and give it voice. The Alliance was established in May 2008 and incorporated as an independent 501(c)(3) in July 2015.
