Pathways Clearinghouse: Overview of the Research
- The evidence suggests that 38 percent of the examined interventions improved outcomes in at least one of the four key domains of interest to the Pathways Clearinghouse. Twenty-seven percent of the examined interventions improved employment, 24 percent increased earnings, 14 percent reduced public benefit receipt, and 8 percent increased education and training.
- Most interventions contained a mix of services aimed at increasing participants’ skills, helping them find or keep jobs, and helping them overcome or manage barriers to employment.
- Interventions most often served people who identified as women, identified as racial or ethnic minorities, and were living in urban areas.
