Building Pathways to Credentials, Careers, and Economic Mobility: Recommendations for the Trump Administration

Mary Clagett and Lexi Barrett

The United States needs bold and scalable solutions to harness the enormous untapped talent and potential of all Americans. Economic development and job creation investments will be essential for helping distressed communities generate new employment opportunities. Talent development will be equally critical to ensure economic opportunity and mobility, as Americans’ economic success is increasingly tied to their education and skill levels.

JFF presents the Trump Administration with a blueprint for how federal policies can encourage state and regional efforts to provide all youth and adults, especially those who are struggling or who reside in distressed communities, with essential skills and credentials.
