About Align Strategies and Fast Forward
Accelerating Progress Through Clarity and Focus

Align Strategies, a MN nonprofit organization, formed Fast Forward, a volunteer-based, Life Coaching program whose objective is to support the efforts of Adult Basic Education (ABE) clients. This is accomplished through one-on-one coaching.

Adult Basic Education (ABE)
The ABE mission in Minnesota is to provide adults with education opportunities to acquire and improve their literacy skills necessary to be self-sufficient and to participate effectively as productive workers, family members and citizens.

Both Align Strategies and ABE are of the strong belief that the Fast Forward program will effectively assist the Minnesota Department of Education ABE program to greater success with its participants, achieving increased numbers in their goals/outcomes:

  • Attain employment and/or better their current employment
  • Achieve high school equivalency (GED or high school diploma)
  • Attain skills necessary to enter post-secondary education and training
  • Exit public welfare and become self-sufficient
  • Master basic academic skills to help their children succeed in school
  • Gain self-esteem, personal confidence, and a sense of personal and civic responsibility

This program not only helps students be successful in obtaining their GED credential, but also to assist in goal-setting toward vocational goals and independence. This gives students the power to live to their potential and the freedom to choose their destiny.
