Hand in Hand: Community Colleges Help Build Career Pathways for Dislocated and Low-Skilled Workers

2012-2017
Prepared For

U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration

Finding ways to improve the life trajectories of economically dislocated and low-skilled adults is a mounting policy challenge.

In all three cases, Mathematica has worked closely with the colleges to support learning from their programs, for example, through technical assistance to help the colleges use their own and external administrative data for performance measurement and program improvement. These multipronged initiatives were funded under the U.S Department of Labor's Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grants program.
