Better Outcomes for Low-Income Youth and Adults: Lessons from the MetLife Foundation Awards

Richard Kazis, Leslie Haynes, and Martin Liebowitz

First-time college-goers, new immigrants, working adults, welfare recipients, high school dropouts, and others with limited college experience and success—these groups are increasingly dependent upon community colleges for an educational and economic leg up. Writing in Community College Journal, Richard Kazis, Leslie Haynes, and Martin Liebowitz of JFF explore strategies that community colleges are using to improve the quality and effectiveness of their services to low-income youth and adults. As a result of innovations the authors describe, underserved youth and adults are entering college, going farther in their education, and earning credentials that matter in life and work.
