Back on Track
Pathways Through Postsecondary
JFF's long-standing commitment to improving the prospects of low-income 16- to 26-year-olds drives our focus on creating pathways to postsecondary credentials and family-sustaining careers for the 480,000 low-income students who drop out of high school each year.
In serving this population, the Back on Track model reengages 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.
All Back on Track projects are led by a senior team from JFF. Our staff have significant depth and breadth of experience working with districts, states, intermediaries, national youth-serving networks, and community colleges to implement programs and strategies that propel off-track youth to graduation and college-ready success.
