“These People Just Keep Trying to Help Me”—Supporting Students to Succeed in College and Career Pathways

Jobs for the Future

Community college students today face multiple barriers—personal, financial, and academic—to achieving their postsecondary goals. In order to help more people juggle the myriad facets of daily life that make it difficult to stay in school and complete credentials, colleges need to deliver a broad range of support services in a coordinated manner. This brief highlights strategies for developing comprehensive supports to increase college and career success for underprepared youth and adults. It is part of a series from JFF’s conference Bridging the Gap: Postsecondary Pathways for Underprepared Learners.

JFF has deep experience working with community colleges to design and provide comprehensive support services for underprepared students. For information on JFF's services, please contact Barbara Endel, Senior Director, bendel@jff.org or 617.728.4446 x235.
