Title:Pathway to recovery: Implementing a back on track through college model
Source:http://www.jff.org/sites/default/files/Pathway_...
Date:2012
Organization:Jobs for the Future
Short Description:National youth-serving networks, low-income school districts, and community colleges are all on the front lines of helping disconnected youth gain the education and skills they need to contribute to a productive workforce and to rebuild our communities. This paper highlights one such effort to create Back on Track pathways, the Postsecondary Success Initiative, launched in 2008.
Annotation:Across the country, social entrepreneurs are refusing to give up on those who are most often written off: young people who leave high school without a diploma. At the same time, these innovators are demonstrating how dropout recovery can be part of national recovery as the country struggles to escape from recession. National youth-serving networks, low-income school districts, and community colleges are all on the front lines of helping disconnected youth gain the education and skills they need to contribute to a productive workforce and to rebuild our communities. This paper highlights one such effort to create Back on Track pathways, the Postsecondary Success Initiative, launched in 2008 as a collaboration of JFF, YouthBuild USA, the National Youth Employment Coalition, and, as of 2011, the Corps Network with generous support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Open Society Foundations. Working with JFF, the national networks are helping local affiliated programs (both diploma-granting and GED) collaborate with postsecondary partners to: •Enrich their academic offerings; •Create bridges to postsecondary education; and •Build first-year supports to ensure that young people get the academic momentum they need to attain a postsecondary credential. The entrepreneurial energy unleashed by the strategic, cross-sectoral partnerships being forged to offer Back on Track pathways suggests an innovative and potentially cost-effective solution to the challenges of helping low-income young people attain a meaningful credential and participate in economic recovery.
