About Our Areas of Work
We organize our work into three areas to help low-income youth & adults:

Adult Education and Literacy and the Workforce Investment Act

Jobs for the Future

On May 4, 2010, six national organizations, including JFF, wrote to key U.S. senators and representatives with advice on improving the educational and economic outcomes of low-skilled adults: “We see a tremendous opportunity in the reauthorization of WIA: to make changes to Title II so that adult education and English literacy programs are able to ensure that more low-skilled individuals move along the continuum from low skills to success in college and job training, career pathways, and jobs that pay a family-supporting wage. Not only will such success be good for many millions of individuals, but it is vital for our nation to compete effectively in the global economy.”
