This report is aimed at bridge program practitioners whom WSC hopes will learn from the promising practices highlighted. Policymakers will benefit from learning how these programs are working on the ground to effectively bridge individuals into postsecondary credentials that lead to careers. The report also includes video clips that capture practitioner and participant emotions and personalities.
Jobs for the Future works with districts, states, national youth-serving networks, intermediaries, and community colleges to reengage youth who are off track to graduation or out of school and put them on a path to postsecondary success.
In serving this population, Back on Track was developed to reengage off-track and out-of-school youth by creating clear pathways into and through postsecondary credentials. We develop and scale these designs with districts, states, national youth-serving networks, intermediaries and community colleges.
To assist its partners in this work, JFF offers a comprehensive range of services, tools, and resources.
