Pathways to Work

In today’s economy, it takes a postsecondary credential aligned with labor market demand to succeed in the workforce. Though there is an increasing variety of pathways through education to the workforce, far too many people – especially students of color and those from low-income backgrounds – end up in dead-end pathways that don’t open doors to good jobs.

Our team brings strong expertise in working with states, districts, and other leaders to ensure that career pathways and programs offer students real long-term value. We work with on-the-ground leaders to build demand-driven pathways that start in high school and continue to and through higher education and into the workforce, with high-quality opportunities like work-based learning, early postsecondary opportunities, and industry credential attainment embedded along the way.
